The notorious "Le Corbeau" (1943) is an intriguing film directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot, with the storyline about a mysterious character entitled The Raven that writes poison pen letters and the power of rumors and the effect in the population of a small town in France. The film was banned in France since it was produced by the German company Continental Films during World War II in the occupied France.
"The 13th Letter" (1951) is a poor remake of "Le Corbeau" written by Howard Koch that introduces melodrama, romance and unnecessary explanations in the tight screenplay by Louis Chavance and Henri-Georges Clouzot. It is amazing how silly the plot becomes with these awful modifications. Despite the great international cast of this 1951 version, prefer to see the original "Le Corbeau" instead. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Cartas Venenosas" ("Poison Pen Letters")
