The first of four filmed versions of the Greek play by Dimitris Koromilas, this pastoral tale of romance and jealousy was also the first talking picture in Greece, and a runaway success. A rich man named Mitros (co-director Dimitris Tsakiris) falls in love with a young shepherdess named Krystallo (Nina Afendaki) and gives her a silver necklace as a token of his affections. Krystallo is, however, involved with Liakos (Manos Katrakis), a poor shepherd who owes his life to Mitros. Debts notwithstanding, Liakos is furious when he sees Krystallo wearing the necklace, and almost loses his life in a feud with Mitros. Everything works out nicely in the end, and worked out even better for co-director Elias Paraskevos, who remade the story to even bigger success as the first Greek color film in 1956.
