Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Idiotically cast (but therefore compulsively viewable to film fans) Warner Bros remake of the old Elisabeth Bergner vehicle, with Ida Lupino as the Bergnerian waif and Errol Flynn, no less, as the caddish composer she falls for. Only skilled Eleanor Parker really convinces as Flynn's fling after he marries Ida. British expatriate director Peter Godfrey does what he can with this stale tosh, though the Erich Wolfgang Korngold score does go some way to mitigate the silliness. Watch for the great Albert Basserman in his last American screen role as Professor Heinrich.
