Gloria Swanson and the rest of the cast make this film tolerable, but the plot doesn't give one any surprises, nor do we find ourselves caring about the characters with any great depth of feeling. The Egyptian mysticism wasn't necessary to the film and actually made the film more superficial than it could have been without it. Perhaps Gloria was taking her cues from her past relationship and films with Cecil B. DeMille, but still we could easily have seen the results of Sunya's choices without the aid of a crystal ball.

Best thing about "The Love Of Sunya", for me, was seeing John Boles in a silent film. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for him, and he was so young here. Not to mention he was great in the love scenes; very easy on the eyes. :)

The print I saw was on VHS and very dark; I don't know if the DVD version print is any better, since it seems to be unavailable. The piano score was uninspiring. See the film if you have an interest in Gloria Swanson or John Boles, but other than that the film itself is rather forgettable.
