Boleslawksi's lavish production of this historical melodrama is best known today as the only film that all three Barrymores (John, Ethel and Lionel) made together.
Is memorable only because it's the one and only time that the Barrymore family appeared together on screen.
Splendidly stylish, often terrifying with great turns by all the Barrymores.
