The Way of All Flesh (film)


The Way of All Flesh (film)

"The Way of All Flesh" is a 1927 film that was written by Lajos Biró, Jules Furthman, Julian Johnson and Ernest Maas from a story by Perley Poore Sheehan. The film was directed by Victor Fleming and is unrelated to Butler's novel "The Way of All Flesh".

The film is a melodrama starring Emil Jannings, Belle Bennett and Phyllis Haver. Jannings won the first Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in this film and his performance in "The Last Command" (the only year that acting Oscars were awarded for multiple performances).

No known copies of this film are known to survive, making Jannings' the only Oscar-winning performance to no longer exist.

The movie was remade in 1940, starring Akim Tamiroff, Gladys George and William Henry.
