Pola Speaks - and sings!
10 July 2002 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is a great film - My copy came from a very poor 16mm print with very scratchy sound, but none the less - it is still a wonderful movie - Pola is radiant. I understand why this movie was not popular at the time - it really is a bit of fluff, but the actors give whole hearted performances and Pola's rendition of the song "Paradise" make this film worth while. It can be hoped that one day a better print will be made widely available.
