Flesh and the Devil, directed by Clarence Brown, is a 1926 silent film based on Hermann Sudermann's play "The Undying Past". This romantic drama stars Greta Garbo as a countess whose beauty threatens the friendship of two young men. Leo von Harden (John Gilbert) and Ulrich von Eltz (Lars Hanson) are two German soldiers who have been friends since childhood. Leo falls in love with the seductive Felicitas von Rhaden (Greta Garbo) and conspires to murder her husband, Count von Rhaden (Marc McDermott). As punishment, the Army sends Leo to Africa for five years; he asks Ulrich to protect Felicitas while he is abroad. When Leo returns home early from Africa, he finds that Ulrich has married the Countess. Felicitas, unhappy in her marriage, attempts to seduce Leo once again, but he finds he is torn between his feelings for her and his loyalty to Ulrich. Produced by Metro-Goldwin-Mayer, Flesh and the Devil has been preserved as a historically significant film by the Library of Congress.moreless
