This home movie version of Camille features such a stunning array of actors (Charles Chaplin, Paul Robeson, Yvonne Printemps, Aileen Pringle, Ethel Barrymore), performers (Chauncey Olcott, Serge Kousevitzky), artists (Georges Lepape, Charles G Shaw), writers (Sinclair Lewis, Somerset Maugham), and oddballs (the rest!) that it is difficult to take your eyes off the screen for a second, wondering who you might miss! It is loosely based on 'La Dame aux Camelias', but you wouldn't really know it. But for the historic and curiosity value - even lawyer Clarence Darrow makes an appearance - it is worth seeing once.
