    Kinda right but the film industry was only about 10 years old, and the actors were used to over-emoting and gesticulating so they could be seen in a big stage theater.

    I love the old Universal monster movies from that era.

    I was watching this move called Gaslight which is supposedly a great movie and the acting is horrific.
