A great little comedy drama starring Pola Negri. A European countess, after being betrayed by her lover, goes to live in small town Middle America with her cousins and causes havoc among the rather puritanical community members. A memorable scene involves Pola with a whip and her leading man.
Pola's performance as the Italian Countess with the tattoo who is sexually desired by almost every male she meets was kind of over the top, but who cares? This was the 1920's, before censorship of the Hays Office, and almost any topic could be explored on film, even blatant sexuality. Two classic sequences are Conklin's tattoo and the whip. You won't forget either. Not to be missed by any silent film fan.
