This is an interesting film. There have been many tellings of the story and this is one of them. One interesting aspect of it is how the credits are done, written in the sand and then the waves was them away to reveal more credits. To me, the story is well-told. The actor who plays Friday is a bit over-the-top, but I thought the rest of the cast did very well. If you like silent movies and this story interests you, I would say it would be worth checking out. Of interest, also, in the particular version I heard was the musical accompaniment. I felt like I was watching a PBS presentation. The star of this movie is most famous, as I understand it, for presenting the supposed first pictures of the Loch Ness monster.
