User Reviews

Second of four versions is considered a LOST film.

Otis Skinner created his most famous stage role, Hajj in KISMET and went on to play it until his death. He first filmed it as a 1920 silent and then recreated the role in this 1930 talkie with Loretta Young. The work used an experimental 65 mm wide screen format and some Technicolor. Unfortunately no print or negative is known to exist so we can't gauge it's effectiveness. This version is considered to be one of the "LOST" films.
