They should have a vote and just stick with one.
You could ask somone "Have you seen Obsession?"
and they wouldn't know what you were talking about but they might have seen it as The Hidden Room, confusing [sign in to see URL]

Re: Obsession (a.k.a. The Hidden Room)


Well, after reading all of the comments, I just have to try and find the book!
I love this movie, even though RN plays such a creep. (But he's so good at whatever he does, it's always a pleasure to watch him anyway.)

I just love how casually he tells him "This is how I'm going to kill you and then this is what's going to happen after I do it."
Luv it lol

Re: Obsession (a.k.a. The Hidden Room)


It was in the Martini.

This is not just one of the most thrilling Robert Newton films I've ever seen - it is one of the most thrilling movies I have EVER seen. Period. Full Stop. The End.

I loved the way he was so British and apologetic over the whole incident. You know, sort of "I'm terribly sorry old boy, I wish it didn't have to turn out this way, I actually happen to like you - but what can you do? This is the way it has to be. I do hope you won't hold it against me!"

He simply oozed evil. Which, for a cheery chappie like Bobbie, just shows what an amazing actor he was.

Re: Obsession (a.k.a. The Hidden Room)


Last week I just had to watch an RN movie and I happened to choose one of my favorites, Obsession emoticon .
But I made an observation and wondered what everyone else thought (actually I made the observation a long time ago but never got around to posting it).

SPOILER ALERT!

  There is a scene right after Finsbury gives back the gun to Riordan and then leaves the Riordan household and, as he is walking along, hears the American sailors using 'Thanks Pal'. He then calls Storm to discuss what he heard and you then see Clive lifting up the receiver to listen. Right after that, upon hearing a male voice on the phone with his wife, Clive then grabs the gun and puts it in his belt behind his back and walks upstairs. At that point, he starts to go up the stairs to the second floor, changes his mind, then goes into the parlor to get a drink. He then hears Storm come out of the bedroom and he sits down in a chair and pretends to read a paper. After that he confronts Storm as she is getting ready to go out of the door.
  My question here is: what do you think he was going to do when he started to go up the stairs to the bedroom? He obviously changed his mind. Or decided that he needed a drink first. I think he intended to kill her emoticon !
  What are everyone's else's opinions.
