I agree throughout every scene at the mansion I felt like I was watching
an old movie (particularly a Lana Turner movie, the first one that came
to my mind was the Postman Always Rings Twice, but I knew that wasn't it).

If she was looking for a dupe, she couldn't have done better.  Maybe
that is why James has always been portrayed as such a twit. It was
all part of the story line and he really isn't that bad :).
