Famous Lasky Players Go Bankrupt
22 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This was the last film that Hitchcock did for Famous Players Lasky before they went bankrupt. The 23 year old went on to work on 'Always Tell Your Wife' where he met his future wife, Alma Reville. He brought with him the principle of showing a story in films, not telling it.
