Bluebeard

Bluebeard (1944) is a thriller directed by Edgar Ulmer and starring John Carradine.




1000 Misspent Hours says, "As the most ambitious of the PRC horror films, it definitely merits a look." Bright Lights Film Journal has an overview of Ulmer which includes their take on Bluebeard, including this on Carradine:
Bluebeard is distinguished first by Carradine’s superb performance, easily one of the best in his career, as Gaston Morel. Carradine’s career is made up almost entirely of character parts, at which he excelled; given the chance to carry a film, he does it beautifully here.
