Beauteous Marion Davies
23 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Exciting story about reincarnation casts Marion Davies as a current-day rich girl named Pauline prone to odd trance-like moments and a liking for "sunny Spain." Films starts with a procession of ancient times and women who have reincarnated thru the ages to become Pauline. Story then starts with Pauline dressing up for a masquerade party.

The main characters are introduced to include her parents and brother, a young doctor (Norman Kerry), and a fortune-hunting European duke. Daddy Anders Randolf) wants Pauline to marry the duke, but she has a yen for the young (and poor) doctor. With daddy still insisting on a marriage, they all set sail on a massive yacht.

Then one night Pauline goes into a trance and starts to write in her diary but she has no idea what she's doing. When she comes to, she discovers a curious scrawl and shows her mother. Accidentally they discover the note has been written backwards. The note seem to indicate a spot where a treasure chest was buried hundreds of years ago.

They set sail toward the island. But Pauline keeps having premonitions and seeing visions. She "sees" the pirate ship battle and the burial of the treasure. She also sees that her father was the infamous pirate El Diablo and that her young husband is killed over the treasure. How many of these visions will come true? Is there really a treasure buried on the distant island? Based on a short story by F. Britten Austin in which the heroine dies like her long-ago self did, you can bet this Marion Davies film will not see her fall on her sword. But since the final reel of the film is missing, we have only contemporary reviews to give us a hint at the ending.

Davies is terrific as usual. Randolf and Kerry are fine. Edith Shayne plays the mother, Earl Schenck the brother, and John Charles plays the Duke.
