The only decent Hollywood remake I saw was Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much. As Hitch himself said, the first film was done by a talented amateur, the second by a master. The two stars in the remake being the most Hollywood thing about it, I suppose.

1934, dir. Hitchcock

1956, dir. Hitchcock

should I just see the '56 version and not bother with the earlier?
or is it worth seeing both?

I think it is worth seeing both. There are a lot of interesting differences.
