User Reviews

One of Ann Harding's "lost" films.

Since this play was the basis for both the Puccini opera and at least two film versions (the latter being the MacDonald/Eddy operetta), it is most unfortunate that this early talkie version is lost, and with it a performance by stellar star of the early talkies, Ann Harding.
