Movie Info

An American military man's romantic affair with a Japanese woman results in a child and the woman's ritualistic suicide upon discovering that his heart ultimately belongs to another. This odd retelling of the Puccini opera eschews music and allows young Cary Grant one of his biggest early roles.

Critic Reviews for Madame Butterfly

All Critics (1)

The same company which produced A Farewell To Arms... a week later presents us with a lemon called Madame Butterfly, an ancient story made duller by labored humor and a creaking, revamped manuscript.
