"Vienna-born, New York-raised Josef von Sternberg directed some of the most influential, stylish dramas ever to come out of Hollywood. Though best known for his star-making collaborations with Marlene Dietrich, von Sternberg began his career during the final years of the silent era, dazzling audiences and critics with his film's dark visions and innovative cinematography. The titles in this collection, made on the cusp of the sound age, are three of von Sternberg's greatest works, gritty evocations of gangster life (Underworld), the Russian Revolution (The Last Command), and working-class desperation (The Docks of New York) made into shadowy movie spectacle. Criterion is proud to present these long unavailable classics of American cinema, each with two musical scores."--Container

"At the time of the United States' entry into World War I, Amos Crow is dogcatcher in the little river town of Buford, Tennessee; he is so kind-hearted that he boards all his captive canines rather than kill them. His pal, Willie, decides to enlist after being chided for his lack of patriotism by Camilla, cook in the home of Mary Jane Robinson, daughter of an aristocratic family. Amos is rejected by the Army because of his feet, but manages to get in line with recruits bound for France, along with his dog, Deep Stuff. At a camp in France, Mary Jane, now a YMCA hostess, breaks off with Captain Davis, who is unmasked as a German spy, and Amos and Willie promise to find Ted for her. In rescuing Ted from a dugout, they learn of a surprise attack; they send Deep Stuff back with a message, but he is missing upon their return.
