In 1928 Irving Thalberg of MGM hired the famous documentarist Robert Flaherty (Nanook of the North) to make a film in Samoa, then insisted that he use two “stars” (Monte Blue and Raquel Torres), a sappy story, and an even sappier codirector, W.S. Van Dyke. Flaherty, understandably, walked out halfway through, and no one is quite sure how much of the finished film—MGM's first sound feature—is his. See for youself.
