There were two movies made based on the same book/play. The 1941 of the version starred Joan Crawford - a very beautiful, young Joan Crawford - with her remarkable acting talent in full blossom. I have not seen this version of the movie, t am sure Bergman was excellent as well. The 1941 version was very well done with a cast that also included the great (and also young) and handsome Melvyn Douglas. Great supporting cast and great screenplay. A must see if you can find it to rent. See more »
The magic of Ingrid Bergman seems to be missing in this movie. Where is her natural talent for acting, that was so evident in Intermezzo? It sounds like she is on a stage, but perhaps you need to understand Swedish to fully hear how artificial her lines sounds. Bergman as a bitter blackmailer does not convince me one bit. The best acting is done by supporting actor Tore Svennberg as the old factory owner, an actor who reminds of British actor C. Aubrey Smith. Another supporting actor, Georg Rydeberg as the heir-not-to-be, was told in acting school that he had absolutely no talent for acting. I wouldn't go that far, but his acting is still undeveloped, .
