The Wedding March (1928)

In director Erich von Stroheim's stately drama:

  • the extended flirtatious sequence of the meeting of dissolute Prince Nicki (director Erich von Stroheim) (on horseback) and commoner Mitzi (Fay Wray) outside St. Stephens as he prepared to participate in the Corpus Christi procession
  • their courtship under an apple-blossom tree with a romantic kiss
  • the film's controversial and notorious orgy scene in a brothel populated by an assortment of Chinese, Nubian, and Polynesian women
  • the wedding march itself when Nicki must marry crippled rich heiress Cecelia Schweisser (Zasu Pitts) for money instead - witnessed by a tearful Mitzi from the side
