Trivia

Although this was filmed in CinemaScope, for twenty years, Turner Classic Movies has repeatedly shown it only in pan/scan. See more »

Goofs

While the picture takes place between 1945-1950 in mainland China (see the Republic flag in the hospital), the clothes (dresses, shoes and hairdo) that Eleanor Parker wears are contemporary to when the picture was made in the mid-1950s. Correction - the novel was written in 1925 making the film set in the 1920's NOT the 1940's. See more »

Wonderful film, ridiculous title
29 May 2005 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Originally, I had no intention of watching this film on TCM, but the presence of Bill Travers got my attention, and I gave the movie a shot.

Frankly, I am surprised at how much I enjoyed it. All of the leading performances are excellent, and the back lot filming appropriately evokes the implied locations. Sanders is, indeed, the most thoroughly explored character, supporting or not. Travers portrays the brooding husband quite effectively, and Parker has perfected the role of a selfish woman in many films.

Having not read the original novel, I cannot comment on the translation to the screen. However, as a stand-alone film, the results are intriguing, and well done. "The Painted Veil" certainly makes a better title, however.
