Guiness plays two different characters, so similar in appearance they could be twins. One may be a rather bad guy and the other an almost good guy. If Guiness portrayed them differently, I really didn’t notice. I would knock off points for this missed opportunity by a great actor. Also, I didn’t really understand all that was going on – some of this may be related to the foreign accents of the characters (no subtitles) – or it may be that I wasn’t interested enough to try more to understand what was going on. Bette Davis seemed to be cut and pasted in to sell more tickets.

Miscasting and an ending so abrupt that many question it, this 1959 version is not worth viewing time. Stars given are for Alec Guinnes's performance only.
