Both David Holt (as Florizel as a Child) and Virginia Weidler (as Miss Vandeleur as a Child) are listed in the cast in some contemporary reviews, but they did not appear in the viewed print. In all likelihood, they were in the cast initially, but removed before the official opening date, and are credited in some of those reviews. See more »
Very imaginative reworking of Stevenson's classic short-story, The Suicide Club. Montgomery and Russell make a well-matched and very attractive couple, and Frank Morgan is superb as his faithful and loyal second. Reginald Owen is marvelous as the head of the club. And, the rest of the supporting class including a young and handsome Louis Hayward, is equally compelling. The score and photography are exquisite as well. This is one to be watched and enjoyed.
