Pola's film she made in the UK after leaving Hollywood. The print that exists now has French Titles (the French Title of the movie is Notre Dernier Tango (Our Last Tango) which makes absolutely no sense what so ever - neither does the American Title The Woman He Scorned. The English title is the only one that even partially applies to this movie.
Regardless of title problems it is a beautiful film with a rather decent synchronized sound effects track and even a small section where you hear Pola humming a song. The cinematography is very good on this picture and the film composition as a whole is very good. Even if you don't read French, you should still be able to understand this movie. Hopefully someone will release it with restored english intertitles.
