Comments about Scapegoat, The:

Sir Alec Guinness (who has portrayed everyone from Fagin to Obi-wan Kenobi in the movies) is given an amusing choice here, to play it over-the-top as a screen baddie/antagonist or underplay his duo role as a goody-goody/protagonist. He manages to pull off both equally with extraordinary finesse. Immortal screen legend Bette Davis appears as an inscrutable dowager-aunt surrounded by so much bric-a-brac and props in what has to be the most overdressed set in the movies up to that time. Daphne du Maurier is usually Hitchcock territory and one can't help but wonder how he might've envisioned this film with the "Master of Suspense" at the director's helm.

    This is a great (widescreen)transfer, with a few white specks here and there, a few bad frames, but very good contrast, sharp, and clean audio also.
