Pandora And The Flying Dutchman [DVD]
Albert Lewin's acclaimed 1951 adaptation of the legend of the Flying Dutchman, starring James Mason and Ava Gardner.
The classic haunting legend of the Flying Dutchman is transposed into an upper-class English speaking community at a small port in 1930s Spain in this Hollywood classic.
James Mason stars as Hendrick van der Zee, a man cursed, destined to travel the seven seas until he can find a woman willing to die for his love.
He certainly did not think he found that woman when he met spoiled nightclub singer and femme fatale Pandora Reynolds (Ava Gardner), who is engaged to be married to racing driver Stephen Cameron (Nigel Patrick) but is also being courted by hotheaded bullfighter Juan Montalvo (Mario Cabre). However, the pair soon discover that love can develop in the unlikeliest of places.
Recently screened at the BFI Southbank as a part of their Martin Scorsesee curates season in 2017, as one of his favourite films that inspired him.
