    An enjoyable watch.
    Although I haven't compared it to the stage script, I'm certain that Hollywood exised/truncated/changed some of this in its transfer to screen.
    Still, it is surprisingly sex-filled for its day,
    and the stars are all fine, especially
    Deborah Kerr.
    I cringe thinking about Bette Davis in the Broadway version playing
    Ava Gardner's blowsy/sexy role.
    "Shaaaaaaaannnon...what a dump!"

    I was disappointed to learn that the documentaries make practically no mention of Grayson Hall's performance in the film- after all, she walked away with an Oscar nomination, not Burton, Gardner, or Kerr! A very bad oversight!!! And as a Dark Shadows fan, I can safely say that there's a lot of us who feel the same way!
