Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 01/31/1996
"...Ava Gardner's most glamorous color close-ups ever, photographed by the great Jack Cardiff..."
New York Times - 08/27/2010
"PANDORA achieves a feverish, dreamlike quality, with its eerie landscapes -- forced perspectives littered by fragments of classical statuary, derived from de Chirico's surrealist paintings -- flashbacks within flashbacks and elevated language."

Product Description:

A Spanish nightclub singer forgoes all other suitors when she tragically falls for a man she can never have--the notorious Flying Dutchman. A surrealistic, Technicolor fantasy from British director Albert Lewin.

Plot Synopsis:

In this adaptation of the famous "Flying Dutchman" legend, James Mason plays a man condemned to travel the world until he finds a woman willing to die for his love. He certainly doesn't think he's discovered her in a beautiful nightclub singer (the stunning Ava Gardner) who juggles lines of suitors.
But romance can bloom in the most unlikely places.
