This motion picture can now be seen at a well known website, and I just viewed it for the first time yesterday evening, and ... Now, firstly, how can anyone say that Jimmy Stewart was miscast? I thought that both Jimmy Stewart and Simone Simon were perfect. By the way, your website notes the circumstances as to how her father died, and after leaving behind such a wonderful daughter, he did not die in vain. Next, as Diane shows an evidently avid interest in the kitchen, some might now say that might be somewhat out of date - you know, not exactly a power situation. Well, there are still a number of good guys out there, and if they ever had a chance to meet someone like Diane, no matter what she asked, they wouldn't even dream of saying no. How's that for a power situation?
Some reviewers also misunderstand who Diane was while she was under her sister's rule. For example, when Sig Rumann merely tried to offer a kiss, look what happened. Continuing, I also note that in real life, Simone Simon never married, and I wouldn't be surprised if this reflects her role in this movie - an angel and a saint. Finally, this motion picture didn't receive a hint of the recognition that it so richly deserved when it came out, and I wonder why?
