Critic Reviews for Bright Shawl

All Critics (1)

Robertson has made some beautiful scenes tor The Bright Shawl, both in Havana and in his studio, and has managed to maintain a high degree of pictorial excellence. Thus, the film is beautiful to look at, even if the drama is extremely hard to swallow.
