I had planned to watch this film, but slept in and caught the final 20 minutes or so. I'm so sad to have missed the rest of this wonderful movie. It looks even better than I had hoped it would. Please, please, show it again; if possible, not so early and please, not in the middle of the night. Thank you TCM, for all these wonderful old, beautiful movies.

Loved this movie. Much better than the Garbo version. Also loved the 2007 Norton version.
Couldn't Believe All of the Good Reviews
This movie was so awful, I could not help but keep turning back to it; hoping that Bill Travers learned to act.
The Seventh Sin
- Cheryl Bynum
I really enjoy the movie, "The Seventh Sin. I admire the doctor for being so kind and humble and meek. He the type of man that I would love to have. His personality is unique.
the seventh sin
- ron jackson
one of the best acted and engrossing films of its time. it was a sleeper then, for reasons i could never fathom. it would well serve film lovers if it were released as a DVD.
Would love to see 1957 version "The Seventh Sin," released on DVD with Eleonor Parker. I have to admit that I was unable to see the ending because the power went out and have been looking for it since. I did see the recent remake of the film "The Painted Veil," and loved it!! But I just have to have the black & white version. Loved the dramatic performances.

Maybe it's the Rosza score or the enervated way Eleanor Parker plays Carol (Maugham's Kitty), but this one really gets the mood of Maugham's story. I've always loved the first 30 tension-filled minutes, it's beautifully done. The religious element is nicely handled too, and George Sanders is wonderful. It seems to wrap up too fast at the end, that's my only complaint. Dear TCM, would love to see this on DVD!
The Seventh Sin
- John Kirk
This film is, so far, not available on DVD, so catch it on TCM when you can. Whereas it's not as successful as the remake from a couple of years ago, it's a lot better than the Garbo version. It features good performances from Eleanor Parker, George Sanders, and Francoise Rosay, as well as beautiful B&W cinematograhy by Ray June, who had just shot "Funny Face." Vincent Minnelli took over direction of the film when Ronald Neame left the project in mid-production, so for Minnelli fans, this is one you should see.
the painted veil/the seventh sin
the seventh veil is a good film but the recent production of the painted veil with naughton and naomi watts is superb. i note that all the film adaptations of the story deviate from somerset maugham telling where he shows the utter sadness/pain when one partner finds his love is not returned. the authors ending is much more harrowing.
Terrific Film, Literate and beautifully acted.
- Gordon Hall
Wonderful adaptation; sceenplay fantstic; with compelling performances by both Eleanor Powell and Bill Travers. Beautifully mounted and great supporting cast. Much better than recent re-make,or previous version. We need to see it released for sale on DVD. I really loved this great old movie.
