THE OLD DARK HOUSE

(1932, James Whale) In the rainy Welsh countryside, Raymond Massey, Gloria Stuart, and Melvyn Douglas seek refuge in a creepy mansion, to be greeted by hulking mute butler Boris Karloff and broadly-accented Laughton, and with household head Ernest Thesiger presiding over “the most awful dinner party in the history of the movies” (Simon Callow). “Nothing better in this vein has been done before or since.” – William K. Everson. Approx. 74 min. 35mm print courtesy Library of Congress.

THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP

(1932, Marion Gering) At a North African submarine base, captain Charles Laughton is so insanely jealous of wife Tallulah Bankead’s supposed affair with Cary Grant that he drives her right in to the arms of Grant’s replacement... Gary Cooper. A flop then as a new Garbo, Bankhead’s tense, frustrated performance looks modern today; with wild disaster film climax. Approx. 78 min. 35mm.

“An entertaining, exotic potboiler.”
