Did You Know?

The film contains many before their time innovations. These include: Marguerite's high "afro" wig in the theatre scene at the beginning, an open fire pit set in the middle of her living room, and doors that open automatically at approach.See more »

Fascinating visually, Valentino fine, Nazimova has her moments, 31 July 2001

The art direction and costume design in this updated version of the classic play are outstandingly imaginative. The Valentino performance is one of his best - he is a perfect Armand, losing control only once when he exposes Marguerite before a gambling crowd. Nazimova is over the top in her acting when she's called upon to be vibrant and demonstrative - she is full of cliched silent acting mannerisms - but when she has quiet moments she is quite controlled, subtle, sensitive and convincing. Her death bed scene is just as memorable as Garbo's - reaching out to the auctioneers who are cataloguing her possessions for sale as she lies dying in her bed (reminiscent of the harpies stealing the bed linens while Scrooge's body lies cold and dead in the bed). This is a fascinating film - and quite short at 63 minutes. Worth catching.
