The first, British version of Patrick Hamilton's popular play, is extremely well acted by Diana Wynyard and Anton Walbrook, but Cukor's MGM version, with Osar-winning Ingrid Bergman, is superior.
| Original Score: B+
So much goes right in this film version, all without sparking a corresponding bump in my enthusiasm, that it's all the more obvious that I find some foundations of this text perennially problematic.
| Original Score: B
The husband is played by Anton Walbrook, who is far more sinister and emotionless than Charles Boyer would be in the later version.
