Music


Just saw this movie on TMC. It looked great! The contrasts were crisp and beautiful in black and white.

One of the reviews complained about the music being over bearing. I was struck just the opposite. There were times without any music at all...and no dialogue. Very quiet and effective.I was pleasantly surprised by this. So many of the films of this era DID have music in every nook and cranny that they could fill, as if they were afraid of silence.

I was rooting for Helen to somehow go "back to the future" with Peter...but alas twas not to be...

The most surprising thin about the music score is that there IS one! Few films before 1934 had such elaborate musical scores and I was pleasantly surprised to find this, albeit in a wretched print.
