3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining old fashioned melodrama Oct. 23 2006
By blondeguy10 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Its interesting when watching some of these old movies from the 60's, 70's and even to a certain extent from the 80's to observe how film making techniques and acting styles change over the years. Given today's penchant for much more gruesome thrillers, this film from the 70's (itself a remake) is rather tame. It's a stylish and well acted tale of a family gathered together for the reading of a will ("Leeches All") and we all know that before morning maybe one or more will be dead.

Its quite old fashioned and melodramatic in places and the cast of stalwarts all look like they are having a blast and each has a 'chewing the scenery' moment. Whatever happened to Carol Lynley? she was certainly talented and her 'english' accent is not bad at all.

Love this old movie. Like everyone in it.

Would recommend movie.
3.0 out of 5 stars "Except the moth" Oct. 24 2009
By bernie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie follows the story from previous versions and play presentations. Looks like a lot of out of work actors including but not limited to Honor Blackman, Wendy Hiller, Olivia Hussey, and Carol Lynley.

The story starts out with an unnecessary introduction of want is to come with a hanging cat.

Just as a play only one person talks at a time. Each character is introduced and their peccadilloes explained. The dialog shows to be an attempt at humor. It also clings closely to one-liners as the Bob Hope version (1939) set in the 1920's. One added plus is that the credits showed the faces of the actors with the names; it is rare but keeps you from having to second guess who plays whom.

1934 20 years after old Cyrus West (Wilfrid Hyde White,) very a rich old man kicks the bucket, his will is about to reveal his heir. If the recipient proves to be insane or also kicks the bucket, then there is a second heir. To make things more complicated there may be a loose lunatic that escaped from a nearby asylum; they call him the cat.

Remember as Bismarck said "a little caution outflanks a large cavalry"

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Anamorphic Nov. 15 2012
By Bobby Jeffcoat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Labeled as anamorphic on the Amazon website, it is NOT. Clearly letterbox, expect to find those nasty black bars on all four sides of the screen and the image covering only half of a widescreen tv. What a shame for a DVD produced only 8 years ago. The movie I would give 4 stars, and I might have given this DVD more, except it isn't what's it's advertised to be, anamorphic.
