George O (au) wrote: The premise of this film is wonderful if a bit unsettling, and it's pulled off in good fashion. Good lead performances from Timberlake and Seyfried make the film a pleasure to watch and there's never really a dull moment, you enjoy learning about this world, the politics and the characters surrounding it.

Bette Davis was amazing (as usual), she played both twin beautifully to where each lady had very distinct mannerism, not just physical attributes. Karl Malden was pretty awesome too, but the real kick for me was seeing a very young Philip Carey (who played Sargent Hoag, but I will forever fondly know as the magnanimous Asa Buchanan). Although the cast was simply stellar, I have to admit that the real star of this movie was the plot. Granted, by today's standards, the ruse would quickly unravel through the use of modern forensic and evidence gathering but methodology was a lot more simpler then and much of the investigation went by sheer gut-feeling and instinct. The scheme was kind of diabolically clever albeit a wee bit dark, especially given the era. This movie was thoroughly engaging, a little ironic and a little heartbreaking.

This is why it was with considerable astonishment that I discovered that my local library has it on DVD. This film was made, along with apparently more than a few others, to protest "Paragraph 175," mentioned elsewhere as being the paragraph that criminalized homosexuality. (Well, homosexual acts, which I suppose is a valid distinction. But since you basically commit sex acts or go celibate, and since very few of whatever orientation choose the latter, there you are. And in fact, the law could be interpreted to mean merely kissing or fondling!) These films all featured "sexologists," a term you just don't hear often enough these days, explains very patiently that there's nothing wrong with being gay, that a lot of major historical figures were gay, and that it's your own fool fault if you think there [i]is[/i] something wrong with it. Sadly, though this film is about to turn 90, some people still don't seem to have gotten the point. Our sexologist, whose name I don't recall, tells Drooly Wannabe-Girlfriend Girl to give it up; she's not going to "cure" Conrad Veidt's character, tortured violinist Paul Korner. He rails against the mindless prejudice represented by Paragraph 175. We actually see the blackmailer given free rein, because if Paul Korner turns him in, he gets to turn [i]him[/i] in on Paragraph 175 charges. Which happens, naturally. But the sexologist testifies before the court, which says, in a nutshell, "You, blackmailer? You suck; four years in prison for you. You, tortured violinist? We'd like to let you off entirely, but the law won't let us; one week in prison for you!" (Judge Harry Stone would sentence him to $50 and time served.) Of course, Korner becomes a total social outcast and ends up killing himself. But you knew that already, didn't you?
