Eva von Berne and the lost Masks of the Devil (1928)

PostTue Oct 31, 2017 8:42 am

Does anyone know why Eva von Berne was released from her MGM contract after she made the lost film Masks of the Devil? Does she mention this when she was interviewed for the Hollywood miniseries?

I read on the Internet that her grasp of English was poor and she was not thin enough. The film starred John Gilbert and Ralph Forbes. Reviews made it sound so interesting since its director, Victor Seastrom, had Gilbert look more and more like the devil each time he saw his reflection in a mirror.
