This start for Gregory as producer and Laughton as director is rich in promise but the completed product, bewitching at times, loses sustained drive via too many offbeat touches that have a misty effect.
Half a century later, actor Charles sLaughton's only film as a director, is as still riveting, haunting, and impressive on any level. Like other masterpieces, it was both an artistic and commercial flop when initially released in 1955.
