I saw this film by accident the other night on a college channel that fills its empty air time with films that are out of copyright. It is handsomely produced and beautifully photographed, and the acting and direction are better-than-competent. I was especially impressed with the quality of the dialog, which avoids the obvious and gives the illusion of 19th-century speech.
Only Raymond Burr's forced and colorless performance failed to impress. I will be charitable and assume he was ill at the time. (He died two years later.)
On a scale of zero to four stars, I would give it (just barely) three stars. It's certainly worth at least one viewing.
