Columbia's 12th serial of 57 total (following 1940's "Deadwood Dick" and ahead of 1941's "White Eagle") is another of director's James Horne's "classics" where he evidently figured that the same reactions that served him well in Laurel and Hardy films would work well in action serials where he has all hands, heroes and villains alike, doing some kind of over-the top "take", no matter the situation. This loose adaptation of an Edgar Wallace story finds Michael Bellamy (Kenne Duncan in his Kenneth Duncan period) inheriting Garr Castle, but his brother, Abel Bellamy (James Craven, as usual making Oil-Can Harry look smooth), has him imprisoned unjustly and moves into the castle himself.

Gaynor B (ru) wrote: The beautiful, guileless Bess played by Emily Watson carries this film to such supreme heights it's difficult to no picture her coy face winking at you through the camera for days after viewing. Von Trier is a master at playing with our expectations and assumptions regarding faith and belief. What is dangerous and what is good. Unlike some other directors, I'm looking at you Haneke, Von Trier posits the questions, but doesn't hand hold the viewer through to the "answer" if there needs to be one. And, as always, beautifully filmed.

I'm sure quite a few young men found themselves on the other side of the world wearing dogtags and missing a limb or two as a result of this movie. I hope the the same thing doesn't happen to me.

Daniel V (es) wrote: A masterpiece by a master of his craft. Sergio Leone passed up The Godfather for this labor of love. It ended up being his last movie, seeing as he stepped away from making them for a bit. The studio butchered this movie for an American edit that ditched its intended story telling method as well as cutting the movie in half! Luckily most of it has been restored and it is beautiful with one of the finest movie scores ever composed. An epic of epic proportions!
