A timeless romance based on the legend of the Flying Dutchman. Ava Gardner, one of the most beautiful screen goddesses of all time, plays Pandora, a woman who has never fallen in love. When she meets the dashing but doomed captain Hendrik van der Zee, he pushes her to commit an ultimate act of love.


"...very unusual and uniquely compelling..." - The New York Film Festival

Cohen Film Collection introduces this rarely seen film by director Albert Lewin (PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN). IDOL tells the story of an archaeologist who uncovers relics of an ancient Mayan human sacrifice. A local girl soon becomes possessed by the spirit of the Jaguar God upset by the excavation…or does she? Lewin takes full advantage of the striking Mexican locations.
