Budapest bar entertainer Zara is a discontented alcoholic who is pursued by many men but lives with novelist Carl Salter. A strange man (Tony) shows up on Salter's estate claiming that Zara is actually Maria, the wife of his close friend Bruno. Maria, Tony claims, had her memory destroyed during a World War I invasion ten years ago. Zara doesn't remember but leaves with Tony to Salter's dismay. Bruno, now an officer in the Italian army, tries to coax Maria's memory back on his large estate. No one is really sure if Zara is Maria, and when Salter shows up with a mental case that he claims is the real Maria, everyone on Bruno's estate is desperately searching for the truth. Written by

Greta Garbo was extremely protective of Erich von Stroheim during filming. He was suffering from depression and poor health, and on some occasions, she covered for him by claiming to be sick. See more »
If You Went to this Film in 1932, It WAS FANTASTIC!
The audiences that went to this film in the 1930's adored Greta Garbo,"The Painted Veil",'34, in her performance as Zara, in this film, she is a drunk who has many admirers and lovers. Zara is believed to have had a husband whom she has not seen in ten years. She meets Melvyn Douglas(Count Bruno Varelli),"The Old Dark House,"'32, and he tries to bring back her memory when she was his wife. Erich Von Stroheim(Karl Salter),"Sunset Blvd.",'50, plays the evil bad guy, who was one of Zaras many lovers and he tries to break up this romance. The plot was well written in the 1930's and these great veteran actors made this wonderful picture from the past, a TRUE CLASSIC FILM for ALL GENERATIONS TO VIEW!
