1933!! You must be joking.
28 January 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I am genuinely surprised to discover this was made way back in 1933, watching it on DVD I was amazed by the quality of sound and picture, great efforts must have been made to tidy it up. It's not just the physical side that impressed me, the story itself was so good, told in a very cognisant way. The plot was cohesive, well constructed, and featured enough red herrings to throw the viewer off course. The ending came as a surprise, and outcome I definitely hadn't expected. I loved the way the body was discovered, the way everyone carried on as normal, with a corpse sat in plain sight, very nicely done. The acting did impress me, you tend to expect some poor performances in a film of this age, but that wasn't the case, I thought the acting was really rather good.

Better then a host of films made since. 8/10
