  1. I haven’t seen this version, but I do love the Barrymore one. Although there aren’t any exciting costumes in that one, it’s still fun to watch John face off against his brother Lionel in a battle of wits.

  2. Yep, I’d seen that purple suit & squeed! Too bad the movie is just blah. I think I’ve seen pix of the Barrymore one & also been intrigued, so maybe I’ll hunt it down for a comparison.

  3. You’re not a heathen. I grew up reading the books… And my sister, contrary to you, had a thing for Duris. So we went to see it at the theater. It’s the king of film that makes you cheer for the baddy just so you could see some action and put everyone out of their misery. And since it was a bad girl and she was FABULOUSLY dressed, it was not difficult.
    Poor Arsène didn’t have much luck with his adaptations, they always fall a little short one way or the other. But then, he’s also very French, and let’s face it, we’re not good at making action movies.

  4. The scene on the boat where the jewels were stolen were real jewels lent by Cartier, plot is great until you find out about Scott-Thomas.
