5.0 out of 5 stars The Seventh Veil, 19 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Seventh Veil [DVD] [1945] (DVD)
I was delighted when I saw this film had been re-released on dvd. I knew the film well and this is an excellent addition to my collection. It is a subtle story of relationships underpinned by an exploration of the effectiveness of hypnotherapy (quite something for 1947). The classical piano pieces will resonate well with non-classical lovers. A classy film with James Mason at his most love him/hate him/fear him best leading to an enigmatic ending, which will never date. I should declare an interest, my mother was Ann Todd.

Your mother was absolutely stunning in The Seventh Veil. You must burst with pride everytime to watch it. I love this movie because it managed to avoid the trite ending. Well, let's face it, James Mason was an unusual leading man, but I have loved him for years just for that reason. The first time I saw The Seventh Veil I could not believe Francesca and Nicholas wound up together, but hoorah...they did. I have an old VHS copy from the late 1980's that is much better than recent VHS copies. I am going to buy the DVD and hope for the best.

I am looking forward to seeing the film. I may have seen it on television, when I was a not-particularly-interested child, but don't remember it. I recall Ann Todd being talked about by my mother. I should also declare a somewhat more distant interest than Mr Malcolm's, in that Ann Todd was my second cousin twice removed... My grandfather (my mother's father) was her second cousin. His and Ann Todd's maternal grandmothers were sisters. I would also be interested in seeing some of her travel films, which seem to have had good reviews.
