Rewatching GODS AND MONSTERS led to my rewatching other films directed by James Whale. On the heels of the two FRANKENSTEIN classics, this programmer holds up nicely. In their context, I'm tempted to give this one four stars but, on its own terms within a familiar genre of the period, WIVES UNDER SUSPICION dodges many cliches and comes through with intelligence and professionally impressive performances.

Some grad student may devote a term paper to Whale's use of men's hats as a running motif. And the comic relief of the maid merits cautionary praise for the handling of racist strains in the script. But over all the movie is a pleasure that toys with a hubris-drenched plot with mature conviction.

The murderer on trial repeats his "kiss in the mirror" story several times, perhaps because audiences didn't feel obliged to enter a movie only at the start of the picture until Hitchcock's PSYCHO changed how we view movies in public. But the George Morgan's reading is reminiscent of the credibility in the blind saint's performance in BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, bringing a deserved pathos to the film as a whole.

Williams is most charming when he doesn't try to be: the Barrymore leer is happily less present here. And Whale's direction is excellent without calling undue attention to his narrative devices. Gail Patrick, William Lundigan, Cecil Cunningham, and Jonathan Hinds all do fine in the well reproduced Alpha DVD.

Yes, it's totally predictable and corny as all get-out. But if you're in the mood, this one really delivers. It packs a wallop.

I remember seeing this old movie on TCM years ago, and had to watch it again. It has clever dialogue, and is suspenseful and heartwarming.

It was so good to see a couple with such commitment to communication. Watched it on a stormy evening, perfect for a thrill.

I had recorded this movie on our DVR, when Warren William was star of the day on TCM; I watched it this morning. I liked him in this, but could use a different co-star. I remember her in My Man Godfrey and she was great in that movie, I did not think she fit with him. Maybe the other rising women stars were not available or did not think it was a good part. Overall, I enjoyed the movie, and would recommend it to his fans.
