Product Overview

Annabelle enters into a secret and incestuous love affair with her brother, Giovanni. She becomes pregnant. Hiding her shameful passion from the world, the beautiful woman must spurn a throng of eligible bachelors. Finally forced by the church to wed the unrelenting Soranzo, Annabelle succumbs to the marriage bed in a searing scene of sensual splendor. Her unholy secret is discoveredand the erotic tensions build to a terrifying banquet of death. John Ford's play, first performed in the 1630's, is as shocking and absorbing today as it was then.

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review John Ford's Ellzabethan play "Tis Pity She's a Whore" probably was first performed in 1624, and in the more than 300 years since, it has survived as an energetic, lively, not especially profound product of the age that nourished Shakespeare...It's a good film to look at, filmed in warm earth colors and airy pastels. But it's not especially successful. Perhaps the acting is at fault. Nobody in the cast seems to have quite solved the problem of how to perform in a melodrama as violent as it is implausible, and still look believable on the screen...All of this really looks a lot better on the stage. "Tis Pity She's a Whore" still works as theater, especially when we can enjoy it in a period costume production. But as a movie it's hard to take seriously, and especially as seriously as Griffi takes it.
