Trivia

Composer W.L. Trytel wrote a score especially for the film and conducted it for its London premiere at the Royal Albert Hall which included a Russian ballet scene, "The Forbidden Dance of the Elves" by Serge Morosoff, before the screening. Sadly, the DVD fails to use this original score, and instead opts for an inappropriate, sleep inducing, modern score, which detracts rather than adds to the overall effect of the film. See more »

The 26 Year Old Alfred Hitchcock
16 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Hitchcock continues his tradition of adapting novels and plays by bringing Raymond Paton's novel to the screen. Having read the novel myself, I don't know what Hitchcock saw in it, and then watching the film was just another mundane chore. His early films have not made my personal video library.
