Please do see it (re-mastered) its like walking through a haunted Technicolor candy store and amazingly it was filmed almost entirely on a British studio back lot in England! (*-*)

Damn like Kathleen Byron was so beautiful...

Luxury, desire, pleasure, humiliation all thrust in upon her in the forms of the young General with his emeralds and perfumes, and of Kanchi, the young Jean Simmons in dark panstick with a jewel in her nose, and Kathleen Byron's famous pent up, ravening portrayal of Sr. Ruth finally holds up a mirror of the abyss into which Sr. Clodagh too might fall, and indeed only just escapes in more ways than one.

His son's rock band is Sabu.

Then there's Mr. Dean (David Farrar):

I'm a self proclaimed film historian whos been reading about and watching as many different movies as possible from all time periods and from various countries for about thirty five years as well as listening to other people discuss them...

Although i have read about this Black Narcissus movie before i watched it for the very first time only like six or seven years ago and i was blown away by its visually haunting and majestically technicolored artistry...

Keep in mind that the vast majority of black and white films were made that way because of budgetary restraints not for artistic choices and Black Narcissus is easily one of the most ravishingly colorful movies ever made (*-*)
