Movie Info

This highly detailed silent version of Bizet's famous tragic opera from Cecil B. DeMille, features opera diva Geraldine Farrar recreating one of her most famous roles as a feisty gypsy who falls in love with the soldier assigned to hold her captive. To bring Farrar to the screen, studio head Lasky and director DeMille bent over backward to literally treat her like a queen. They gave her a mansion complete with servants, fancy cars, handsome escorts, her own bungalow and two dollars for every hour she spent in Hollywood.

The magnificence of the scenic investiture as a whole reflects much credit upon the producers and praiseiIs due the director.

An ingeniously prepared, picturesque, amorous and exceedingly physical photoplay based on the novel by Prosper Merimée.

Undoubtedly Miss Farrar has never acted so well as she does in the screen version of Carmen.

July 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Surprisingly adult in its frank presentation of an essentially fairly trashy story.
