Ahaahahaha! You know, I was thinking last night ( with my grown up brain) that really, Maria was actually the wrong woman, but the movie made it seem like she was the wronged woman. You’re absolutely right; the captain was the Baroness' man.
Then he kissed Maria.
But no one (except, apparently, Classical Sass ) got mad at HIM.
This is par for the course. Boys will be boys, just running rampant in the street, penis in hand, because they can’t actually be expected to only care about one woman!
So we turn on one of the women.
I think I softened towards the Baroness as I got older, but she still always seemed to me to be up to no good.
I think it may have been the horns.
