Audience Member Like many movies from the 50's there is some over acting but i love the actors and the story line. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid version of the Maugham tale with excellent work by Eleanor Parker, Francoise Rosay and in particular George Sanders who makes his character a fully fleshed out person in a limited amount of screen time. Not quite as good as the Naomi Watts/Edward Norton remake, done under the original title of The Painted Veil, but still a good entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A tedious remake of Greta Garbo's 1934 The Painted Veil. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Why dont they make movies like this anymore?
