Delmer Daves' movie about a family mystery, filmed outside, is as compelling as it was fifty years ago, with stunning performances by Edward G. Robinson and Judith Anderson, a superb music score by Miklos Rozsa and thoroughly rising tension. Unfortunately, all existing tapes have been awful experiences because of the rotten sound and picture quality. The new DVD has Dolby Digital, so the dialogues fare somewhat better, while still aren't acceptable. A complete restoration appears to be very expensive, so one now has to stay with this best version. Finally, the movie counts.
