The Dove

The Dove was a 1927 silent film directed by Roland West[?] and starring Norma Talmadge[?], Noah Beery[?], and Gilbert Roland[?]. Based on a play by Willard Mack[?], the original story is about a Mexican despot (played by Beery), who falls in love with a dancing girl (played by Talmadge), who rejects him. Due to the political repercussions of condemning Mexico, it was decided to relocate the plot to some anonymous Mediterranean country.

Though the film was not well received, William Cameron Menzies[?] won the first Academy Award for Best Art Direction in 1928 for this film and Tempest, though the award was then called "Interior Decoration."
