Dir: Paul Czinner
Starring: Raymond Massey and Elisabeth Bergner
Tragedy ensues when the wife of a violinist in a famous orchestra falls in love with his friend
This tragic drama was the remake of a 1932 German film of the same name which in turn had been based on the 1929 play Mélo by Henri Bernstein. Despite a beautifully playful performance from Bergner and equally good reviews from the critics, the film was not that well received publicly. It should be found, however, and watched, because it is brilliant even if the ending is terribly sad. The film does feature some genuine railway footage at London Waterloo with Pullman stock in the pouring rain, though the scenes are not all that clear.
