why such a high imdb rating?
Like Joyce Miller who commented in another thread, John Gilbert is one of my favorite actors, and seeing that this film is going to be shown on TCM (October 3), I plan to watch it.
But noticing that it only got a one-star rating, I decided to check it out here. Surprise! On the IMDB page, it gets a 7.8 - same as, e.g., Laurence Olivier's Hamlet.
Reading the reviews and the very few comments, that wouldn't quite stand up. Anyone know why this film would get such a high numerical rating while being panned by nearly all who spoke up about it?
Considering the director (I've recently been trying to see all Niblo's films I can find) and the cast, one would think it would have been a better film.
still looking forward to seeing it - can't seem to resist gypsy girls and the Russian countryside, or anything Tolstoy for that matter...
