    So it's the 1944 MGM version, no the 1940 British version?

    Considered by some to be a better film than the MGM version.

    According to WIkipedia

    Encouraged by the success of the play and film, MGM bought the remake rights, but with a clause insisting that all existing prints of Dickinson's version be destroyed, even to the point of trying to destroy the negative, so that it would not compete with their more highly publicised 1944 remake starring Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman, and Joseph Cotten. "Fortunately they failed, and now the British film has been restored by the BFI and issued in the UK on Blu-ray in a pristine print."

    Cambridge is ordered along the same lines.

    That's why they get so many teams on the University Challenge quiz show.
    Thanks Captain, I read the Wiki entry years ago, it makes more sense now maybe they edited maybe it is I am not in the middle of call center with people talking all around me,

    Yes, the '44 one with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer.

    I have only seen the MGM version, the older film would have to be very good to beat it.

    Series two of 'Inside No 9' is so far as good as the first.
    First episode 'Zanzibar' was a 'comedy of errors' set in a hotel involving murder, prostitutes and a wedding proposal, all done in iambic pentameter.
    Second episode 'Bernie Cliftons Dressing Room' was a 'two hander' with just the Shearsmith and Pemberton as a long defunct comedy double act meeting for the first time since their split in the 80's.
    It was outstanding. Funny and moving, the unexpected payoff at the end brought a tear to my eye.

    Episode three (on last night but I am watching on iPlayer tonight) will have to be good to top it.

    This should be interesting, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to tv show parody of paranormal shows.
