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.

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.

The British got to the play first, and theirs is the leaner, tauter script, if not the better movie.

The husband is played by Anton Walbrook, who is far more sinister and emotionless than Charles Boyer would be in the later version.
