Blanche Yurka as Madame Defarge is the best thing about this movie adaptation. She is so fantastic!
Great movie, and Jacques Tourneur directed the French Revolution parts. The woman who plays Madame DeFarge is incredible, too.
While Blanche Yurka makes a good Madame Defarge, Colman still impresses with this great Dickens adaptation.
