I didn't notice the knuckle-biting faux pas noticed by the last commentator, but agree with him that the acting is very well done. Margaret Lockwood is outstanding! I disagree that the book is better. The movie is far better. This is House of the Seven Gables as if it was written by Nat's buddy, Herman Melville--it's got some real romance and intensity about it as a result of changing the relationships around. It also has some anti-racist, anti-slave politics completely absent from the book. When is it going DVD--I'll scoop it right up!
Now if only somebody would get around to filming Melville's PIERRE!
