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.

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.

Alla was clearly waiting to get paid and really deserves top billing over Bari.
