        Stiff and creaky original version of the much remade weeper. Chatterton is too theatrical in her role to buy in her later scenes of dissipation. Watch the more enjoyable Lana Turner version instead.

        Ho boy. It's amazing that this story gets done and done and done over and over again. You would think that this not very subtle play of coincidence would get boring. This is the one that started it all. Such a shame.
