Both David Holt (as Florizel as a child) and Virginia Weidler (as Miss Vandeleur as a child) are listed in the cast in some contemporary reviews, but they did not appear in the viewed print. However, they do appear in the film's trailer. Their scenes were cut just before the official opening date as they are are credited in some of those reviews. See more »
According to the AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-1940, there was a version that included Virginia Weidler and David Holt playing the two lead characters as children at the start of the film, according to contemporary reviews. But that was not in this print nor in the cutting continuity submitted for copyright. See more »

Intriguing drama of aristocrat recruited by a 'suicide club'
This is an intriguing version of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Suicide Club", with ever-urbane aristocrat being recruited by an apparent group of boring rich people, willing to kill themselves for sport ! All is not as it seems and after Montgomery encounters mysterious Russell, the stage is set for a surprising revelation and an exciting climax.
