I'll be back next Monday March 7th
In the meantime, here's an image from FRINE - COURTESAN OF ORIENT (1953) starring Helena Kleus and Pierre Cressoy. Mario Bonnard wrote and directed this film. He also directed APHRODITE, GODDESS OF LOVE (1958), which shares many things with FRINE, including settings, costumes and some actors. It's a completely different story and yet it feels like a remake. The big difference is FRINE is in B&W while APHRODITE is in color.
