Storyline

In ancient Egypt, an evil priest drove a pure maiden to suicide. In today's reincarnation, to free himself the priest must find and help the maiden...now a young American singing student, Sunya Ashling, who is torn between pursuing a career in European opera, going to South America with fiancée Paul, or saving her father from financial ruin by marrying wealthy Robert Goring. The ancient priest, reincarnated as a gypsy vagabond, grants her visions of her future life if she should follow each of the three roads. Does each have a fatal drawback?

My two reasons to watch this movie
29 August 2000 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

First reason : that film was the one at the première of the weird and spectaculor movie theatre the Roxy, of New York. At my second degree at the university, I have study movie theatres in Quebec and North America, so I have seen a lot of pictures of that première. Closing my eyes, I'm there watching the Gloria Swanson movie. There's a wonderful but sad photography of miss Swanson, very diva in the ruins of the Roxy in 1960, like she was returning to the very chic place of her past fame. Second reason to watch this : Pauline Garon. She was a French Canadian from Montreal and have play in many Hollywood films of the silent era. Nobody here remember her, but in the newspaper of Quebec during the 1920's, all her films were big success, just because she was in it. See our lovely patriot having success in Hollywood! People here were very pround of her and she when she came in my home town of Trois- Rivières, en 1932, she was welcomed here like she was the biggest star of all time! In that movie, I saw her for the first time. Beautiful blonde plays a flapper. Now! What about the film? I don't think it represents the best from Gloria Swanson, but it shows what films for women will be in the 1930's. Seeing miss Swanson in the banal melodrama, we sometimes think of films of Bette Davis or Joan Crawford. This isn't a great silent movie, but it can represent the regular factory film of Hollywood of the time.
