First, so as to avoid more confusion than is already here ---I watched this online with amazon prime -and while I actually watched the William Wyler version, starring Siobhan McKenna/Michael Rennie/John Mills) - the cast/trivia,etc. information, etc. provided to me for and alongside this movie was the information for the Bette Davis version. That said, just so you'll know what it is I'm reviewing here ------this one failed me. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe. When it started up and immediately I saw the over-the-top acting, I burst out laughing and knew I had a winner even if it was not what I had intended to watch, as my original intent was to be viewing some kind of old, film noir type movie. Well, it is that but it's a fail in the film noir department, it goes straight into campy. The first "stressful" scene involved Ms McKenna in a "clutching my pearls" scene right out of a movie pre-talkie style - only a few times in my life have I seen more over-acting. It was a hoot. Now, in order to not give things away (as if!) I will say it played campy-dumb all the way through and even though that was not the intent, or so I'm led to believe, it was hilarious. But------sadly--------The ending was a fail. Looking back, I see it was all in line with the rest of the movie, but honestly, to me it was like you're watching it and you're waiting for the bomb to drop and instead....the curtain closes. Finis. That was the disappointment that took me down to 3 stars from 4. But, up until then, it was a kind of a fun watch...the kind of movie you want to grab some friends, popcorn, a cold drink and munch and laugh and hoot and holler. Don't expect a drama, per se, because it's just too overbaked. Worth a watch if you like that kind of thing, but don't expect much of an ending....however, the ending might give you some eye rolls, but it just kind of slaps you in the face, so be prepared.
