Audience Reviews for The Seventh Sin

Solid version of the Maugham tale with excellent work by Eleanor Parker, Francoise Rosay and in particular George Sanders who makes his character a fully fleshed out person in a limited amount of screen time. Not quite as good as the Naomi Watts/Edward Norton remake, done under the original title of The Painted Veil, but still a good entertainment.
