If you want true life - then maybe you should watch this. However, if you want escapism and the belief that dreams can come true - enjoy watching this posse of actors at, what i believe to be, their best. Basil Rathbone excels as the alter-egotistical villain whilst Arturo De Cordova gives dash and swashbuckling joy to die for! He excels as the dashing Frenchman set lose on the Cornish coastline and Joan Fontaine is delicious as his (almost) tomboy sidekick who is all woman. no remake ever came close to this original costume dramatic effort. What's more, the storyline stays almost entirely true to the original writings of Daphne De Maurier and that can't be a bad thing! . Fantastic, romantic enjoyment at its best!
