Visually Mesmeric
1 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Story about love and betrayal in a lighthouse off the coast of New Zealand.

Compelling and visually mesmeric as the pounding surf the film keeps cutting to. The actors might be a tad hammy but hell it's 1931 and each has his/her moments. Fay Compton is terrific as the bored wife, Edmund Willard is excellent as slimy Cass. Ian Hunter may be the uneasiest of the actors. Frank Harvey is good as the husband. Long scenes without cuts and fantastic photography more than compensate for the familiar story.

The film was actually banned in Australia and New Zealand. Compton is best remembered for THE HAUNTING as the owner of Hill House but she had a long career in Brit silent films. This was her second talkie. The woman Compton is chatting with in the opening scene is terrific, not idea who she is.....
