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 seems 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 mutiny in which her brother is killed 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 and buried with 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 hero and heroine face a tragic ending, but since the final reel of the film is missing, we have only contemporary reviews to give us a hint at the ending.

Great production values (by Joseph Urban) and West Coast filming add a lot. Davies is terrific as usual. Randolf and Kerry are fine. Edith Shayne plays the mother, Earl Schenck the brother, John Charles plays the Duke, and Thomas Findlay plays the captain.
