Directed by John S. Robertson.
Praised in its day for capturing the authentic look of 1850s Cuba and its fight for independence from Spain, The Bright Shawl was a showcase for silent era stars, Richard Barthelmess and Dorothy Gish, but also proved a springboard for three future stars of the talkies: Mary Astor, William Powell and Edward G. Robinson. Barthelmess plays an American adventurer caught up in romance and revolution with Gish as the seductive cabaret dancer after his heart.
