Merry Go Round (1923)

The full shot by shot breakdown of the 1923 film, from the 2003 Image Entertainment edition with the original 1923 score (with many interesting ironic musical comments at times).
The DVD edition is 114 minutes, so that’s a rather slow ASL of 5.2 second/shot. The film does slow down noticeably by the (Rupert Julian directed) second half…(Stroheim’s previous Blind Husbands has according to my edition a faster cutting rate at 4.8 second/shot)
