Cytherea Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Producer Samuel Goldwyn gave his usual top-drawer treatment to Cytherea, making this pulpish romance seem more important than it really was. Based on a novel by Joseph Hergesheimer, the film stars Lewis Stone as a socialite who grows bored with his lifestyle and his loving family. Stone runs off to Cuba, where he inaugurates a torrid romance with Alma Rubens, who is likewise running away from her social obligations. After Alma conveniently dies of a mysterious tropical ailment, Stone realizes what a cad he's been, and returns to the arms of his wife Irene Rich-who in a 1996 film would probably have given him the ozone. Luxuriously filmed on location in Cuba, Cytherea represents the A-picture debut of Constance Bennett, here cast in a minor role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
