I was so curious about Nazimova acting in the forties; I barely managed to get through the beginning of the film without her.
Bari is striking, but it might as well be Hedi Lamarr for all the Peruvian flavor thus imparted.
We can almost slightly believe 'Uncle Pio'
Otherwise, one simply watches this to see the phenomenon of Alla Nazimova as the Marquesa, who obviously only slightly enjoyed playing the horrible bitch and accessed the despicability of the costumes and sets with her Stanislavskian training to invoke bitter.
I was curious to note that Alla came through excellently in sound production. Which begs the question, "What the hell was she doing in the 1930's?"
Alla was clearly waiting to get paid and really deserves top billing over Bari.
