I'm not flipping out over this one the way I do with some remakes. When a film is adapted from a book, I often feel there can legitimately be multiple film versions that interpret it in different ways. (Okay, I'm a hair-splitter.)
That said, it looks to me like this one isn't going to be nearly as good as the Joan Crawford version. JMHO. Veda doesn't seem as snarky or as evil, and no Eve Arden, and no Jack Carson . . . and no shoulder pads!
