The Beachcomber [1938] [DVD]

Charles Laughton (actor)
Elsa Lanchester (actor)

Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 1h27m
Quality: Very good, b/w, 4:3

In the Dutch islands, the sister of a pious missionary attempts to reform a womanizing, drunken beach bum.

Charles Laughton was a short, fat, and ugly man. He was the complete anthesis of what you would expect a lead actor to be. However, despite these considerable handicaps, his tremendous acting ability and amazing range of emotions catapulted him to the top of the acting chain in the 1930s. His wife, Elsa Lancaster, was also a very fine actress, as evidenced by her superior work in The Bride of Frankenstein, an underrated film. Add these two giants to the unparalleled writing talent of Somerset Maugham, and you have an unbeatable combination for a classic comedy in The Beachcomber.
