Quick Overview

Starring Robert Newton, Deborah Kerr, James Mason, Emlyn Williams,

Henry Oscar

Directed by Lance Comfort



Print: black/white

Runtime: 96 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B-



Paramount Pictures' British division was responsible for this adaptation

of A.J. Cronin's novel Hatter's Castle. Robert Newton is appropriately

mean-spirited as an 1890s hatter, James Brodie, who is anxious to claw

his way up from poverty. Desperate to make himself socially acceptable

as his income increases, Brodie proceeds to make life miserable for

those closest to him: his wife (Beatrice Varley) and daughter (Deborah

Kerr). For all his blinkered social climbing, Brodie can never truly escape

his true station in life — a moral better suited to the class-conscious

British audiences than the equal-opportunity Americans. Hatter's Castle

was well distributed in the U.S. through Paramount's intimidatingly

efficient studio-owned theater circuit.
