In the film “Mr. Arkadin,” Katina Paxinou plays Sophie. Her character runs a dance studio, which is a front for a white slavery ring. She takes advantage of poor and naive girls seeking a career as ballet dancers by turning them into prostitutes. Katina would later star in another film for Orson Welles, 1962s “The Trial.” But her scenes would wind up on the cutting room floor. This film is a must-see for Katina fans, even though it is nothing more than a glorified cameo performance.
