Dir. James Whale (1934). One of the most British movies ever made by a Hollywood studio. James Whale adapts the last novel by near-forgotten Nobel laureate John Galsworthythe story of an upper class woman who leaves her sadistic husband (Whale favorite Colin Clive) and suffers the consequences with relative stoicism. Among the attractions: George Bernard Shaws favorite actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell supplying some understated wit.
