Pandora And The Flying Dutchman

Albert Lewin's supernatural love-triangle...

Long before Twilight, Albert Lewin had the supernatural love-triangle licked. In this handsome melodrama, operatic emotions and gloriously restored Technicolor create a preposterously heady fantasy.

Master DoP Jack Cardiff has a ball with the lush Spanish locations, while Ava Gardner is torn between racing ace Nigel Patrick and James Mason’s immortal mariner.

It’s the latter’s brooding performance that turns Lewin’s tinny love scenes into something curiously potent.
