    Well-cast adaption of the mystery novel suffers from some lethargic pacing and an intrusive musical score. The story offers twists that would give Holmes some trouble believing. If the movie had sported some atmosphere, it might have been easy to overlook some of the plot's rough spots. Its hard to fault the acting here, which is all fairly good, although no one leaps out as particularly memorable.

    As good an adaptation of Wilkie Collins' brilliant novel as I could have hoped for. But I wish Godfrey had been more obnoxiously and angelically handsome. The actor who played him was quite good, but had a bit of a creepy air about him, which wasn't quite right for the character. Oh, and THANK YOU to whomever decided to drop the end of Ezra Jennings's angsty storyline!!!
