Pandora and the Flying Dutchman

A lushly lensed Technicolor dream, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman is a timeless romantic fantasy that remains one of the most gorgeous films in the history of cinema. A radiant Ava Gardner is Pandora, a seductive American nightclub singer who ignites fiery obsession in all those who surround her but who has never experienced true love herself. But while vacationing in Spain, she encounters a series of admirers, including a dashing but mysterious ship’s captain (James Mason). A haunting, moody and visually inventive stunner featuring cinematography by the great Jack Cardiff.
