1st watched 8/17/2002 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Marc Allegret): Boring 2/3rd's historical drama starring Hedy Lamaar in all 3 parts with a production headed by her as well. The story revolves around a secret love of her narrating as she plays three different roles of great Queens of history(Saint Genevieve & Josephine of France) and mythology(Helen Queen of Troy). She's okay in her roles, but the picture appears more to be a way to show off her beauty & attempted talent rather than the history of these characters. Yes, she is beautiful and can act a little -- but for what other reason should anyone watch this movie? I can't think of any. The version I watched is supposedly a chopped down 97 minutes from an original release of 3 + hours(what a drag it would have been to see the original). Good thing they didn't transfer that to video.
