"Königsmark" isn't the best movie directed by Maurice Tourneur, but however, it is a great pleasure to watch that story around History with a murder related to an old legend in a castle : real Gothic atmosphere close to serial with John Lodge as the bad man, and very quick narration, no useless sequence, every dialogue, gesture, action are necessary and makes the movie captivating. It's also a pleasure to listen to Pierre Fresnay speaking English and see some well known actors in little characters. I discovered Elissa Landi, very good as the determined princess. Nice entertainment.
