Guy Rolfe, who appears here as the elderly doctor, had, over forty years previously, also played a role (as Sepulchre Hawkes) in the 1947 film version - one of his earliest notable film roles. See more »
His house is not a proper place for you. It is a solitude, its master an outcast, and it has been the repeated scene of all sorts of scandals, and of one great crime.

Great Gothic Thriller(there is not enough of these)
It has mystery and suspense. It is heavy on eerie atmosphere throughout the movie which really sets the mood for the story. It has light romance which is not overblown. Peter O'toole makes a wonderful,wicked uncle. He is the only actor who could have played this role because he is very wicked yet unbelieveably charming.
