I loved how the opening credits for "Unholy Love" said 'suggested by MADAME BOVARY'. That's an old fashioned way of saying the stories have similarities but that the screenplay takes HUGE liberties--which is pretty funny since BOVARY is considered a classic.
The film is very much like dbborroughs says in their review. While watchable, the film is too mannered and dull--making it very tough going. However, I might even go further and say that some of the acting is downright terrible. While H.B. Warner is a fine actor, many of the others in the cast weren't so fine. Heck, a few stumbled over their lines and the film SHOULD have had these scenes re-shot. That they weren't and that the overall effort was so dull is an indication that either the director wasn't especially competent or the film was as cheap-o production and the low budget wouldn't all re-shots---or perhaps both. Not enjoyable and not worth the bother.
