Two Months Too Late
9 January 2020 | by foucaultmicheleSee all my reviews

This film was released 2 months too late. The code went into effect 1 July 1934. I'm sure there was footage of a more frank version, i.e. a more faithful to the book, than was ultimately released 6 August 1934. As it is, Mr. Whale did more than adequate with what he could release. My regret is, if there was more footage, it was was relegated to the dustbin of history long ago. The only saving grace is this wasn't an MGM movie. Not to speak ill of the dead, Mayer's heavy hand would have never considered optioning the book in the 1st place. I would rate this 10 out of 10 (5 out of 5? ... whatever) because Claire didn't want to reveal the full extent of Sir Gerald's abuse, not wanting to damage his career (!?), when he had no compunction of dragging her name in the mud. I don't know if this was faithful to the book or a nod to current mores (?) of the day. I very much, enjoyed 'One More River',
