OK, Alright, Hold on a Minute

The 1937 version was way better. The 1952 had no nuance, no conviction, lines were read/said... not conveyed. There was no feeling. It was a simple capitalization on the Stewart Granger-Deborah Kerr affair/success with "King Solomon's Mines."

It was word for word the 1937 script with a few scene direction changes, he hurts his right arm instead of left, they enter the garden and veer right instead of left. Seriously?

All very slapdash.
