As director and actor Erich Von Stroheim did some very weird films and The Great Gabbo is certainly one of them. In this Von Stroheim is a star attraction in a Ziegfeld Follies type stage review and he is fixated on Betty Compson who used to be his assistant in his act, but walked out on him because he treated her shabbily.<br/><br/>Now she is keeping company with Donald Douglas a young hoofer in the show. He&#39;s actually upset as well with her interest in Von Stroheim.<br/><br/>In a way it&#39;s hard to review this because just the name of Erich Von Stroheim brings up images of barbaric cruelty show on the screen. The name alone is sufficient to conjure up horrible images.<br/><br/>So Von Stroheim wants to set up house with her and his dummy Otto. As in most ventriloquist stories the dummy functions as an alter ego.<br/><br/>All this with the backdrop of a Ziegfeld type show. That was interesting and like Glorifying The American Girl, The Great Gabbo is a nice filmed record of what these shows were like on stage. <br/><br/>Although Von Stroheim is always interesting, The Great Gabbo&#39;s best value is as a record of the type musical revue so popular back then.

A Bizarre, Surreal Combination of Elaborate, Extravagant, Eye-Popping Musical Staging and a Melodramatic Story of an Egomaniacal Ventriloquist Romance.<br/><br/>Viewed and Considered Separately the Duel Presentation Plays Fine.<br/><br/>Trouble is when put Together as a Montage it&#39;s about as Clunky as it Gets in these Early Sound Experiments.<br/><br/>Erich Von Stroheim Dominates the Thespians but gets Good Support with Betty Compson&#39;s Non-Musical Dramatics.<br/><br/>The &quot;Dummy&quot; Otto is Surprisingly Uninteresting and is Used Mostly Straight.<br/><br/>The Musical Stage Revue is Surreal, Art-Deco, Over-the-Top with some Startling Choreography and Knock-Out Visuals that were Filmed in Color, but the Footage is Lost.<br/><br/>Overall, a Great Portal into the Machinations of Film-Making at the Transitional Period between Silent and Sound.<br/><br/>A Visual Treat, but those Expecting the Breakdown of an On-the-Edge Ventriloquist that has become a Staple in Horror-Fantasy, will be Disappointed.

The problem for Erich von Stroheim in the title role here is that his character&#39;s abilities to eat, drink - sing La Bohème, even - whilst his dummy &quot;Otto&quot; chats away merrily to the audience does quite come off on film. An out-of-vision voice is nothing new with this medium, so much of the potency of the joke - that might have worked more effectively in a theatre - is lost. What&#39;s left is a mildly amusing, sometimes even slightly sinister story about the eponymous character who works with the rather clumsy &quot;Mary&quot; (Betty Compson) on whom he picks on relentlessly. After one outburst, she packs up and leaves him... Success comes his way and soon they are reunited on a bill where she has a slot as a dancer - and he wants her back! Had the story focussed more on that plot line, and on the slightly macabre &quot;Otto&quot;, it might have worked better - but for the most part it is a collection of mediocre stage performances accompanied by some cheerful enough, but totally forgettable ditties and by the time we have a chance to sink our teeth into the main theme of the film, I&#39;d sort of lost interest. It&#39;s a hybrid of things, this - and James Cruze lost his focus early and couldn&#39;t quite recover it. I did enjoy the ending, though... always did hate puppets!
