PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN
DIRECTOR: ALBERT LEWIN
CAST: JAMES MASON, AVA GARDNER, NIGEL PATRICK
“Watching this film is like entering a strange and wonderful dream,” (Martin Scorsese). Sumptuous, deliriously romantic, and wonderfully mysterious, this adult fairy tale shot in lapidary color by the masterly Jack Cardiff stars Ava Gardner as the resident knockout cooling her heels in a seaside Spanish village, and James Mason as the one man who manages to woo her—though he may be more or less than a mere mortal.
