Was this movie the forerunner of RASHOMON?
8 July 2006 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In 1929, Fox released a courtroom drama that is very similar in theme and content to RASHOMON, produced 21 years later. Milton Gropper and Edna Sherry are the credited authors of the story, but you won't find them credited in any way in the English credits usually supplied for RASHOMON. Ryunosuke Akutagawa may have known of this story, consciously or subconsciously, when he wrote "In the Grove", the source novel for RASHOMON.

THRU DIFFERENT EYES made a great impression on me when I saw it at the age of nine. I don't recall many details after three quarters of a century, but I remember that three different witnesses gave entirely different testimony relating to a rape and murder, during a court trial. At that age, I saw at least one movie a week (the usual Saturday matinée), and I remember this one while most of the others are completely forgotten. It had a great cast, too. Notice Sylvia Sydney and Warner Baxter in lead roles. Pity, it seems to be among the "lost" films from Hollywood.
