The Black Tulip may sound like an action-packed swashbuckler, but is in fact a low-key melodrama set in long-ago Holland. Campbell Gulan plays a merchant whose desire to cultivate black tulips turns into an obsession. Only horticulturalist Patrick Waddington knows the secret behind the creation of black tulips. Gulan frames Waddington, forcing him to reveal his secret. The film was based on a novel by Alexandre Dumas.
