Synopsis

The 1925 silent feature The Swan was the first of three film versions of Ferenc Molnar's play. The original plot was followed to the letter in all three productions: A beautiful young princess of a mythical country, promised in marriage to a much-older prince, falls in love with her handsome tutor. The princess' "arranged" husband-to-be, a decent sort, is obliged to court the young lady, who eventually--and tearfully--sends her beloved tutor on his way. Frances Howard, later the wife of producer Samuel Goldwyn, stars in the first version while Adolphe Menjou is seen as her future husband and Ricardo Cortez is cast as the unlucky "commoner" lover. The two future versions filmed in 1930 and 1955, respectively starred Lillian Gish and (who else?) Grace Kelly. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
