| Disappointed
I bought this title from recently, for a not-unreasonable price. I am a big fan of the original book by Meredith Nicholson, and I was very disappointed to find that this film had NOTHING to do with the original storyline. The only thing taken from the book was the title. But the opening credits state "from the novel by Meredith Nicholson". There was a silent version made in 1915, and judging from the characters' names, it does follow the original story. This 1936 version is a rather cheesy early WWII spy drama. I am no film critic, but wow, the bad acting really jumped off the screen and grabbed me by the throat on this one!
