Of the 3 stories, i thought Hedy's portrayal of Josephine was the best..she was the flirtatious vixen that she was known for and really loved Napolean, but had to withdraw from his love in order to marry 'the Austrian' who would bear him a son. Hedy looked gorgeous as usual and in Technicolor no less..She certainly looked the part of Helen, but the screen play was sort of empty...so whose fault is that...Hedy's? She didn't write those words. I read where this movie was being 'rushed' into production at the same time Warner Bros was also making a more expensive epic, "Helen of Troy', starring a french actor and an Italian actress whose names escape me..in fact, if you think this movie was bad, that one was worse. At least this one had Hedy to look at.
