The Bridge of San Luis Rey
This drama, set in Lima, Peru, circa 1714, tells the tragic tale of a town's reaction to a disaster involving the mysterious collapse of a local bridge. The trouble begins after a aged bridge suddenly falls taking five people with it. The superstitious locals, believing the patron saint of the bridge, St. Louis, has gone, rush to church. They believe the saint left to punish them for their sins. The head sinner is Lily Damita, a beautiful, but cold-hearted cortesan with aristocratic aspirations.
