    The famous story by Wilkie Collins may have been inspired by the legend of the bed of Procrustes, and, in its depiction of a hostelry where the guests are routinely murdered for their money, it may have inspired the well-remembered French movie "L'Auberge Rouge" ("The Red Inn"), which played the horrid idea for gruesome laughs. The young Englishman of the story becomes a young American here and is played by Edward Albert, the son of Eddie Albert, whose brief period of movie fame had begun the previous year with the minor comedy "Butterflies Are Free". Also in the cast is Rupert Davies, of "Maigret" fame.moreless
