Original vs. Hollywood
- Denise Bassen
This is well acted and directed, and the screenplay seems like a more direct adaptation than the Hollywood film. This version has less glamour and is less technically slick than its Hollywood successor, but is every bit as worthy of attention. In addition, seeing this production gives the viewer insight into the choices made by the Hollywood producers with regard to every aspect, from casting to art direction to how the plot unfolds and differences in focus and emphasis.
Can't Wait To Watch On TCMtogo
Outstanding, better than Boyer/Bergman. And Nancy the maid was a downright slut, and the master a bigamist carrying on with her. Surprised she didn't have to die, due to Hays Code!Loved the old constable, never letting up on the murder at #12!
This Needs To Be Shown Again,and Often
Wow!This was so much more than I'd expected,being the original.Boyer was far less sinister than Anton Walbrook,and Diana Wynyard is superb as the wife being driven to insanity!
As Good If Not Better Than 1944 Version
Went in not expecting much,but was totally surprised.This is superior in many ways to Chas Boyer-Ingrid-Joe Cotton 1944 remake.It includes many aspects only hinted at in 1944,as Nancy's involvement with the master,that Louie was nephew of murdered woman,constable from long ago decided to keep a watchful eye on goings-on at #12 Pimlico Sq.That Anton was even scarier as abusive husband trying to drive his wife mad,and pretty much succeeding.And that he had another very much alive wife elsewhere.And Roberts Newton as wife's cousin is a welcome addition.
I didn't care for it
The premise and story were good, but I couldn't help to feel not bored. The acting was... either very dry or too "Forced". The only good scene was when the wife looks at the tied-up husband and says "I've gone mad. What knife? I like to hide things, so I don't know what you are talking about".
i just started watching the classics and i loved gaslight 1940.
to see movie
