Movie girl: At age 12 I saw this version on TV, unaware that there was a film
from 1932 of the same title. A few years ago I saw the other film and was struck by the clever casting and the interesting characters.
THe other film is totally different and has a series of travelers in England that are trapped in a powerful thunderstorm. They are forced to take refuge in a mysterious old mansion. Boris Karloff, Charles Laughton, Melvyn Douglas, Ernest Thesiger and Gloria Stuart head the cast.
THough this one has a good cast, I really did not care for it. I do like Robert Morely, though. I am sure I would give it a chance, though, if it were to air on TCM.
