Movie Info

This is the third known film version of the drama taken from the novel by Alexander Dumas.

Camille is taunted and humiliated by Armand when she opts for the financial security of another to cover her gambling debts.

  • Nazimova totally immerses her own distinct personality into that of the famed heroine. Instead of the sinuous, clinging Nazimova, she appears an actress almost new-born for the part.

Audience Reviews for Camille

Alla Nazimova is probably an acquired taste, as her appearance in 'Camille' (that poofy hair!) and her overly dramatic emoting create quite a combination. (Perhaps she's like blue cheese, strong, will make you sit up and take notice maybe not always in a good way, but somehow grows on you ... but I digress.) Together with heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, the film tells the story of the doomed love affair between a young law student and a society woman who is kept by rich suitors. There are some scenes that are touching and others that are too drawn out, but the Art Deco set designs from Natacha Rambova (who would later marry Valentino) are fantastic throughout, and the biggest reason to see the film. The story itself and the acting aren't going to blow you away, but it's watchable despite its unevenness.

Great sets but everything else is why silents are often derided. Nazimova could not possibly be more affected or more of a screen hog relegating everyone else to the sidelines. Her hair is a rat's nest of staggering proportions. Valentino's part is small and while he's not great he's better than almost everyone else. An artifact.
