What a great movie.....
23 January 2001 | by safarijcgSee all my reviews

This has to be one of my favourite movies. Madeleine Carroll put in an great part as Linda Stewart, and I think it is one of the best she has ever delivered. Plus with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as Jim Logan along side Tullio Carminati, this movie can't go wrong. A great movie and a great cast!
