Synopsis

A sumptuous refilming of Dumas' tragic tale of a young Parisian courtesan and her passionate but doomed love affair with a rich young man who showers her daily with white camellias. This was the 25th (at least) movie version dating back to a Danish adaptation in 1907 and including several movies of "La Traviata," Verdi's opera based on the same story.

Greta Garbo's 1936 version was perhaps the best known, and this one has another Greta (Scacchi) together with a first-rate British cast including Ben Kingsley, in his American TV debut. An Emmy Award was won by Allyn Ferguson for his music score. (Previous television Camilles were Judith Evelyn in 1948, Ruth Ford in 1949, Michele Morgan in 1953 and Signe Hasso in 1954.)
