The writing credit to "Michael O'Hara" is a pseudonym for director Douglas Sirk. He picked the name because when he started this movie he had just finished reading 'Appointment in Samarra' by John O'Hara. See more »
This had to come my way by accident. I must have wanted the 2006 film of the same name, and clicked this by mistake. It's the only reason I can imagine I have it.
Well, have it I do, and lets see what we have.
Linda Darnell (The Mark of Zorro) was excellent as a gold-digger, and George Sanders (All About Eve) outstanding as the object of her love. Edward Everett Horton was amazingly funny as a Count who was to lose it all in the impending Russian Revolution.
Lori Lahner was also a scene stealer in her only film.
A tragic love story that makes me glad I got it in error.
