Full Plot

A Russian Jewish father emigrates to America in 1923, with a promise to send for his mother and young daughter when he is settled. When his village is burned in a pogrom, his mother is killed and his daughter is separated from other youngsters who make it to the port to emigrate. She ends up on a ship bound for England, where she is renamed Suzie and raised by a British family. Many years later, Suzie's talent for singing and dancing sees her accepted into a Paris dance troupe where she is befriended by Lola, a fellow dancer from Moscow. Cesar, a handsome brooding gypsy who works with the troupe later becomes her lover. Lola pursues Dante, an egotistical tenor who is performing in the area. All is well until the Nazis march into Paris, and Suzie's Russian Jewish background places her in danger. She must decide whether to leave Cesar and her friends and continue the search for her father in America. Alexander Lum A young girl and her loving father are separated when he goes to America, intending to send for her. Shortly after his departure, their village goes up in flames, and the girl is forced to go to England, where she takes on the name Suzie, and finds that although she is misunderstood, tormented, and teased, she has one gift: she can sing. The movie follows Suzie through the events of her early life, from when she moves to Paris and joins a dancing troupe, to when she meets flirt and showgirl Lola, to when she falls in love with the gypsy Cesar. In the chaos and mayhem of the beginning of a World War, we witness Suzie's struggle as she is forced to decide between the love of her past to the new love that she has only just discovered.

Trivia

- 'Johnny Depp' (qv) asked for golden teeth to be put into his mouth to give more realism to his character.

- The scenes where the people of Paris are shown leaving town because of Nazi occupation were shot just before the morning traffic jammed the streets.

- The Place de la Concorde was used by the production as background for some scenes. This came after several weeks of negotiation between the director and producers of the movie, and the mayor of Paris, since the location is rarely closed for movie production. The scenes were shot after midnight and before 6:00 p.m.

- The actors/musicians that play Cesar's family are members of the Romanian music group Taraf de Haidouks.

- Final film of Don Fellows.

- 'Robert De Niro' (qv) was originally set to star as Dante Dominio.
