GYPSY BLOOD (1918)
Cast: Pola Negri, Harry Liedtke, Leopold von Ledebur, Grete Diercks, Max Kronert, Sophie Pagay, Magnus Stifter. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch. ~ ~ ~ A love tale of Old Spain based on the classic novel "Carmen" by Prosper Mérimée. La Carmencita (Pola Negri) is one of the most effective vamps the silent screen has ever known, and Don José (Harry Liedtke) her pitiful victim who loses all for love of the alluring Gypsy. Lubitsch's direction and the vibrancy of Negri's screen presence bring power and verve to this classic tale. Includes the bullfight sequence and Pola's gypsy dance with Spanish rhythms. Olé!
Includes Commentary by Rich Olivieri
