France | 1933 | b&w | dir. Marcel L'Herbier, with Charles Boyer, Natalie Paley, Marguerite Templey

Shot in the Pathé studio and on location in Rome, this story of a turbulent marriage is played out against a backdrop of society resorts, high style and glorious haute couture courtesy of Lelong. Count de Dasetta and his wife Marina are successful card-sharps in high society. Charles Boyer’s brooding portrait of a crook deeply in love with his own wife contrasts with the fragile chic of Marina, played by Natalie Paley, the wife of one of Paris’s leading couturiers, Lucien Lelong.
