  • Please Re-Air "The Letter" 1929

    I have been looking forward to seeing Jeanne Eagels' interpretation of "The Letter", and had programed my DVR to record the showing you aired on October 24, 2012. Unfortunately the machine malfunctioned and nothing was recorded.I would appreciate your scheduling another airing of it soon. One of my favorite actresses, Bette Davis gave an unforgettable oscar nominated performance in her role as Leslie Cosbie in a later film version of this story. I should very much like to see Jeanne Eagels own oscar nominated interpretation.Thank you in advance for entertaining my request.Henriette

    I saw a work print of this a year or two ago, and foudn that WB has the rights to this movie, yet, they aren't putting it out on DVD? I saw clips of the film on youtube, a couple of months ago, but WB has had those taken down? If they're not going to make it available to the viewing public for purchase, what's the harm in letting those whom have never had the chance to see a few clips? It is a much better presentation than the remake, in the sense, that it could do more, due to being before the enforcement of the code. I thought Jeanne Eagels' performance was great, too bad she passed so young, and the few films she made are lost or not being released by the films' studios. I wish the studios would put more of these difficult movies onto dvd for those of us whom truly do love silent and early film. Not everyone likes blockbusters, only.

    Jeanne Eagles, in her Oscar nominated role, plays Leslie Crosbie in direct contrast to Bette Davis's more famous interpretation. Where Davis's Leslie is cool, Eagles' is nervy and fidgety. Yet, you can see in this actress the qualities that Davis would make famous beginning in the thirties. I wonder whether Bette ever saw this film. Eagles' revelation of the truth to her husband at the end of the film remains an excellent example of fine screen acting. A bit of trivia: Herbert Marshall, Davis's husband in the 1940 version, plays Leslie's lover here.
