Trivia

The character of Perkins was redesigned, and, in favor of greater audience sympathy for him - from a ruined rich heir (who had a capital that gave three hundred pounds of annual income), in the text of a story not named by name, he turned into a poor abstract artist. See more »

A terrific piece of English literature put to film
26 February 2005 | by cash009See all my reviews

Priklyucheniya printsa Florizelya is actually a Russian version of the short stories of Robert Lous Stevenson written in the book titled: New Arabian Nights. The film mostly focused on stories of THE SUICIDE CLUB and the Raj Diamond. As no alternatives have ever been made anywhere else in the world, this version remains the Best. The acting in the film is superb. Unfortunately, I am not aware of the translated (dubbed) version of this film into English. The only version I've even seen was in Russian with English subtitles. This film is a great example of Soviet Cinema including a wonderful melodic soundtrack. I would love to see Hollywood re-make of these great stories put to film.
