Looks to be another great or very noteworthy find — overlooked or forgotten by now — with some top talents involved. I know it would be a bit of extra work, but is there some reason why no IMDB link gets included with these posts ? (For example, there are often multiple iterations of the same or nearly same title, such as a 1936 “The Devil Doll” vs. the 1964 film you just posted. Much as with the ISBN # for books, the IMDB citation settles this and nails it down precisely, so that there should be no confusion.) But thanks again for all the great work you do here.
