Summary Victor Sjöström (1879-1960), or Victor Seastrom as he was known during his Hollywood career, was undoubtedly one of the most renowned silent film directors. Focusing on his masterpieces such as 'The Scarlet Letter' and 'The Wind', but also including films he had made in Sweden before moving to Hollywood, as well as film fragments and films considered lost, Florin analyses Sjöström's austere and naturalistic style and the transformations it underwent during his Hollywood years.
