With the exception of the beginning credits and the ending of the film, Anthony Asquith did not use background music in this film in order to get the realistic effect. Between the beginning credits and the ending of the film, the only music heard is at the church in the beginning. See more »
A good chap, Hunter, in many ways but no sense of discipline and of course like all scientists a trifle narrow minded.

My wife and I were preparing to attend a party and I turned the TV on as I was getting dressed. The Browning Version had just begun. I had never seen it but after a few minutes, found myself sitting on the bed, still watching. My wife came in to ask why I wasn't getting ready and I pointed to the TV saying, "This is a great movie and I have no idea what it is." She sat down and watched a few minutes to see what I was talking about.
we never made it to the party.
Emotionally engrossing with sterling performances. Very glad to see this finally coming out as a Criterion Collection DVD.
