Curiosities: CAMILLE

Camille is a tragic love story about a courtesan living in Paris who falls in love with Armand Duval, an ambitious young man. This movie is based on La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas (which was first written in the 1850s), but is set in 1920s Paris and stars Rudolph Valentino as Armand. The sets and costumes are AWESOME. Definitely a must-watch if you're interested in Art Deco.
