I'm not sure why this film's reputation is so slight. Perhaps it's because it's a Hitchcock film that isn't a "Hitchcock" film. However, if you can deal with watching a silent movie, it's well worth a look. The performances are uniformly excellent, there is a good deal of effective humor, and the technical artistry is impeccable. One note: find the 129-minute version, as opposed to the shorter one (which is a good half hour shorter).
