But if he had been able, he'd have played it like he had several times before. His work in his '29 film is much like his '37 radio gig.
He had a real grasp of ol' Crookback.

Since it's been a couple of years now, I thought maybe it would be worth starting a thread just on this film alone.
I watched it again last night. I enjoy seeing Karloff, Rathbone, and Price all together (and I can never get enough of that cutey Nan Grey) but this film
always languishes at the "fair" point to me rather than being exceptionally "good". There are always fine moments to pick out (my favorite
is the drinking sequence between Rathbone and Price, who delightfully chews up the scenery as the Duke of Clarence) and Karloff is a terrific villain as Mord
the Executioner. But I feel the movie is overlong, and no matter how many times I see it, the plot seems rather muddled and confusing at times.
So what are your thoughts?
