Good melodrama, mediocre print,
This review is from: Possessed (DVD)
The narrative flow of this film is hampered by the device of returning repeatedly to the past, but there are interesting elements, including 4 characters who can't connect with each other. There are campy moments along with more straight-ahead scenes. The dialogue is better than average. Crawford is good, and her dry-mouth effort to talk in the depth of her character's illness foreshadows the way she played the end of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" However, the printed used to prepare the DVD was not in good condition. There are a number of places where you see faded blacks and streaks. At one point, for a couple of minutes, you see little ovals of light all over the screen, almost like reflections from a sparkly bracelet. It's a shame Warner chose not to offer a restored version.
