Hitchcock the Writer
16 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In this film, Hitchcock adapts Frank Stayton's novel and gives his interpretation of the world of the protagonist. I must admit that some of Hitch's early films are somewhat mediocre in terms of quality and dialogue. There is no real genius expressed at this stage in his life apart from a love of literature and the stage.
