Madame Butterfly DVD
While on shore leave in Japan, American naval officer Benjamin Pinkerton (Cary Grant) was beguiled by the charms of the geisha Cho-Cho San (Sylvia Sidney). After Pinkerton quickly marries her--and just as cavalierly abandons her pregnant upon getting orders to ship out--her long and dutiful wait for his return will be met with a heartbreaking payoff. Straightforward take on the John Luther Long tragedy co-stars Charlie Ruggles, Irving Pichel, Sheila Terry. 86 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
