Angus MacPhail's Screenwriting Debut
23 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 25 year old Angus MacPhail made his lucky break in this silent film where he adapted a play for the screen. It was the same sort of thing that Alfred Hitchcock was doing at the time and their paths would eventually meet over a decade later.
