Quick Overview

Starring Elissa Landi, Paul Lukas, Nils Asther, Dorothy Revier, Lawrence Grant

Directed by James Whale



Print: black/white

Runtime: 70 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



After directing three of Universal's finest horror films, James Whale shifted gears with the

elegant romantic comedy By Candlelight. Though quite miscast, Paul Lukas successfully

conveys the role of Josef, ultra-dutiful valet to the libidinous Count Von Bommer (Nils

Asther). Falling in love with Marie (Elissa Landi), whom he assumes to be a countess, Josef

poses - quite convincingly - as his rakish master. The catch: Marie is herself a poseur, a

mere maidservant to Count and Countess Von Rischenheim (Lawrence Grant, Dorothy

Revier). Based on a play by Siegfried Geyer, By Candlelight is chock full of delightfully

double-entendre pre-Code dialogue and dextrous directorial touches.
