"Hollywood's obsession with this tale of American greed, justice, religion and sexual hypocrisy stretches across the history of film. Some of cinema's greatest directors - Sergei Eisenstein, Josef von Sternberg and George Stevens - have attempted to bring this classic story to the screen. Subsequently, both Jean-Luc Godard and Woody Allen have returned to the story and to these earlier adaptations."
