  1. You and I obviously have differing tastes when it comes to actresses. I cannot stand Miriam Hopkins (or Veronica Lake) and you obviously do. LOL! You make some good point about Mamoulian’s desire to make everything about doubles. It does get tiring, but I think that has to do with over-analyzing Stevenson’s book.

    • Haha, well I won’t make a final determination on Hopkins till I see more of her work. I really enjoyed her in this, but I haven’t seen anything else with her. As for Lake, there’s a lot that I love about her and also the fact that no one seems to remember her anymore. I definitely agree Mamoulian does overanalyze which is good, for the most part, but becomes irksome!
