Escaping an arranged marriage, Sir Paul weds the bewitching Belle,who intends to take him for every penny he's got, then move on to other lovers. Imagine her disappointment when she discovers that her prize catch is flat broke. All sorts of bizarre complications ensue, including the kidnapping of an heiress (June Laverick) by Belle's gypsy compadres.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mercouri pulls out all the stops as a wicked gypsy! February 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A titled member of the English aristocracy (Keith Michell) is heavily in debt so he agrees to a loveless marriage to a girl (Clare Austin) with a plentiful dowry. But when he meets a devious gypsy (Melina Mercouri), he abandons all propriety as she drags him to the depths of degradation and moral rot. The title sounds like a Harlequin romance novel but there's no romance in this tale of how passion (it's certainly not love) can drive men or women to evil actions. Mercouri coldly manipulates Michell who is obsessed with her but she herself is enslaved by her gypsy lover (Patrick McGoohan, showing more sex appeal than before or since) who keeps her hanging on as long as she is useful to him. But the aristocrats (which include June Laverick as Michell's sister) are so arrogantly stupid that I took a perverse pleasure in cheering the evil gypsies on. Directed by Joseph Losey from a screenplay by Janet Green (VICTIM), the film is bathed in vibrant colors that echo the Hammer films as does the film's final minutes which would have fit right in with one of their Dracula or Frankenstein movies. The cinematography is by Jack Hildyard (BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI). With Flora Robson, Nigel Green, Laurence Naismith, Mervyn Johns and Helen Haye.

The Llamentol DVD from Spain is a decent enough transfer though it could use some remastering. Some of the long shots are on the soft side and the colors could be punched up. It's presented in a 1.33 apsect ratio though it appears to have been intended to shown with a 1.66 matte.

3.0 out of 5 stars JOSEPH LOSEY, OPUS 10 March 18, 2012
Format:VHS Tape
Curious how the gypsies are described here, they are crooks waiting for the right moment to steal the bourgeois or the landlord. Also curious that such a theme could please Joseph Losey, a director one would have rather imagined defending the poor and the outcasts. Now, Sir Paul Deverill's obsessive love for gypsy Melina Mercouri is equivocal enough to have attracted the director. Recommended.
