A ghastly remake
13 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

This unfortunate remake of "Girls' Dormitory" (1936) with Jane Withers of all people in the Simone Simon role, has little more than its ghastly curiosity value to recommend it. In addition to its sterling cast (Tyrone Power, Ruth Chatterton, Herbert Marshall, Constance Collier, and S.S. of course), the original had the major virtues of brevity and an offbeat conclusion. This version has absolutely nothing to recommend it at all. Despite the fact that the original playwright, Ladislas Fodor, himself allegedly worked on the script, it has been so padded out and watered down as to lose every vestige of its original appeal. And not only is the cast here so inferior to the 1936 version, but the direction by Harold Schuster doesn't have a patch on the polished job turned out by Irving Cummings. Even the sets are much less impressive and the photography far less attractive.
