  • El Biffo's rating of the film Never the Twain Shall Meet

    I picked this up to see the amazingly beautiful Silent Cinema vixen Conchita Montenegro, who co-stars with Leslie Howard. I wound up watching one of the most racist pre-code films I have ever seen, and if I were to judge it on that basis it would have to get 1 star. Like when he first meets the Polynesian princess (played by a Spaniard) he calls her a "very delightful little savage." Later he beats her with a stick!
