Merle Oberon was a Movie Star!
28 January 2011 | by williwawSee all my reviews

Merle Oberon a quintessential movie star who was known for her exotic beauty and acting talent starred in this film set in Mexico financed by her then husband Bruno Paglai. Merle Oberon whose career was noted by fine performances in These Three, Dark Angel and most famously Wuthering Heights, and having worked with great actors such as Charles Laughton and Laurence Olivier and Marlon Brando, and directors such as William Wyler, recruited Daniel Mann also famous for directing starring ladies such as Elizabeth Taylor (Butterfield 8) and Anna Magnani ( The Rose Tattoo) in Oscar winning performances. Mann was noted to be Susan Hayward's favorite director ( I'll Cry Tomorrow, Ada) and also directed another authentic glamor movie star Lana Turner in the comedy Who's Got The Action. Gavin Lambert a friend of Merle Oberon's crafted the screenplay.

Merle Oberon selected Streets of Laredo hunky actor Robert Wolders as her co star and thus resulted in the most famous aspect of this film: Merle Oberon left Paglai and had a torrid romance with Rob Wolders, 25 years her junior. The film is romantic and has scenes of Mexico that are breathtaking. No directors cut for the able and respected Mann! Merle Oberon took over the editing herself. This movie is best seen for the back story of the movie: Merle Oberon's clashes with Danniel Mann and her insistence of favorable photography to reflect her great beauty, and her love of Rob Wolders whom she married and provided care, comfort and love the last years of her fabled life.
