Two celebrated actresses of two generations - Eva LeGallienne and Julie Harris - reminisce about a legendary forerunner of an earlier time: Eleonora Duse. LeGallienne, who had seen Duse perform, wrote "The Mystic in the Theater", a biography about the great actress, and came to own many of her personal possessions, which she shows and explains to Harris.

Includes a rare film clip of "Cenera" ("Ashes" 1916) showing Duse at the end of her career. Duse tried unsuccessfully to have this film withdrawn.

Eva Le Gallienne was a British-born American stage actress, producer, director, translator, and author. A Broadway star by age 21, Le Gallienne consciously ended her work on Broadway to devote herself to founding the Civic Repertory Theatre, in which she was both director, producer, and lead actress.
