Powerful Melodrama
25 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ann Harding stars as Isabella, a beautiful bride to the wealthy and stubborn Robert Carlyle (Conrad Nagel). Their marriage seems ideal and destined for unending happiness, but Robert's strange relationship with his family leaves Isabella powerless in her own home. She is not even able to raise her own son (Wally Albright) the way she wants to. The only happiness she is afforded is when she is given permission to go to parties with her husband. Then she comes alive again, just as she did when she was young. Unfortunately, her spirit attracts other men, and Robert accuses Isabella of infidelity. She is innocent, but is banished from her home and driven away from her son. Depressed and alone, she becomes the mistress to the man that caused her misfortune.

It is a shame that part of this film is lost, because it is beautifully done. Every moment is filled with emotion. Harding is a wonderful actress who is not given enough credit today, but she always gives all of herself to her roles. This is no exception. It is heartbreaking to see her torn from her son, and wonderful to see them reunited, if only for a few moments.

Even in its truncated form, it would be wonderful to see this film released.
