Overview

Alexandre Dumas fis first dramatized his own novel La Dame aux Camelias in 1852. Before the century was out, the work had been transformed by Giuseppe Verdi into the opera La Traviata; before the next century was out, the Dumas book had been made into no fewer than 25 films. The 1984 TV-movie adaptation, titled Camille like most of the others including the first film, way back in 1907, stars Greta Schacchi as Marguerite, the popular Parisian courtesan who is wooed by innocent young Armand Colin Firth. She is willing to give up her libertine lifestyle for Armand, but is gently convinced by the boy's father John Gielgud that such a union would be impossible. She renounces Armand, but he returns to her side, just as she is dying of consumption. Blanche Hanalis' adaptation of the Dumas novel takes a franker approach to the subject matter than the more familiar 1937 filmization with that other Greta Garbo, and also manages to insert a soupcon of feminism. Filmed in Paris, the 1984 Camille was originally offered as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
Camille is a handsomely mounted TV production of the perennially popular Alexandre Dumas story. The film is skillfully rendered by veteran director Desmond Davis, who does a good job of structuring the events to fit the interrupted pattern required by commercial television. 24-year-old, Italian-born actress Greta Scacchi is well cast in a role that had often been played by older actresses. Despite the story's Parisian setting, almost no one in the cast is French, but the performances of the mostly British cast are nonetheless quite good. Though the story may be familiar, Davis' version is less sanitized than many others.
