Casta diva #

Released 6/13/1935

Description: Martha Eggerth heads the cast of Casta Diva, but the central hero is famed Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini, here played by American actor Phillips Holmes. Paying but scant attention the facts, the movie concentrates on Bellini's colourful love life. Evidently the movie went through few rewriting processes, as witness the curious performances of Donald Calthrop and Arthur Margetson, whose characters do finished about-faces halfway through the story. Amidst so many British accents, Martha Eggerth's Polish intonations seem out of place, but she photographs beautifully and sings quite well. Casta Diva was attractively filmed on zone in Naples. Not to be confused with the 1954 makeover (by Gallone himself) or to the English language ver "The Divine Spark" (also directed by Gallone and starred by Eggerth).

Desperate Rescue: The Cathy Mahone Story Reviews:

Flicked to this TV film just as it was starting and was "hooked" within seconds. Looked like it would be a dumb and "cheesy" TV movie, but ended up being treated to a thoughtful, tense drama of true life storyline about a woman's ex-husband (an American-Arab) who kid-naps his daughter (whom he has visitation rights to) and smuggles her out of America and back to his home country in the middle-east. With no cash and no more official options (aka. the Government), the mother, Cathy Mahone (solid, convincing performance by Muriel Hemingway), unofficially "hires" 3 ex-military boys to go and kidnap her daughter back. This storyline is finger gripping tension from beginning to end. Their solution to receive this tiny American woman back is not your typical vehicle chase and shoot off a lot of guns action. They have to think and maneuver their method through the trouble and culture of few Arab countries and past the ever watchful eyes of the father's very huge Jordanian family in order to retrieve this tiny American woman and reunite her with her mother. I owned it on video for many years and as with any nice story, I watched it again and again, finding something MORE in it every time. Nice acting by the whole cast. Especially Clancy Brown, James Russo and Jeff Kober who portray the 3 boys who decide to support Cathy retrieve her daughter, even though they will now lose a lot of cash to take on this "job".
