Quick Overview

Starring Mary Ellis, John Stuart, Cedric Hardwicke, Conrad Veidt, Jeanne

Stuart

Directed by Robert Milton



Print: black/white

Runtime: 91 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



That old theatrical war-horse Bella Donna (previously filmed in America by

Alla Nazimova) was resurrected by Britain's Twickenham Studios in 1934.

Conrad Veidt stars as sinister Egyptian Mahmoud Baroundi, who even

before the film gets under way has left a long trail of ruined women

behind him. His latest victim is American girl Mona Chepstow (Mary Ellis),

whom Baroundi treats like dirt and makes her like it. The plot centers

around a murder by poison, as evidenced by the film's deliberately exotic

title. Critics in 1934 praised newcomer Mary Ellis for underplaying her

role, but many film fans preferred Nazimova's arm-waving histrionics in

the earlier version.
