Looked a lot better now - August 2008
(Update 8-3-08) Took another look today, much better this time around. Part of the problem is that us old timers still want to hold on to the myth that Orson Welles's version was a masterpiece...which in reality it wasn't. One thing you do notice is what a dry, quaint tale it really is. More of a "little old lady story" of wayward youth and ultimate redemption, mixed with the changing times of 100 years ago. Very good this time around...enjoyed it a lot...good production values and acting. Hate to say this...but better overall than Welles's version...(except for that wonderful missing prologue)...!
