Oddly Compelling Film
11 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seemingly low budget film is oddly compelling. Main plot seems to be about rival brothers vying for the hand of a woman already engaged to a foreign prince. The brothers are also competitive music composers. Honor and truth are key attributes here. One brother is wrongly convicted and imprisoned for murder; the other seems to be a successful composer but he's stolen the music from the imprisoned brother. After many years, the imprisoned brother is freed. How will honor and truth come out? Hugh Williams and John Stuart are the Ferrier brothers, Joan Maude is cast as Roma Romano. Alan Napier is Count Romano. Dino Galvani is the prince. Best of all is Gina Malo as the deranged and distraught ballerina who has two memorable scenes. One is in a badly underlit cafe were she rants about unrequited love; the other is in the preposterous ballet scene where she dances Swan Lake.

Despite the exotic name, Malo was born Janet Flynn in Cincinnati but did most of her film work in England. The only other film I've seen her in is GOOD NIGHT, VIENNA with Jack Buchanan and Anna Neagle.

The ending of this film is rather surprising and makes it all worth while.
