Hitchcock funniest film
3 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Very funny. I never realized Hitchcock could do slapstick. Surprised to find the story and characters easy to follow and identify with even with the near lack of title cards. The best silent Hitchcock film I have seen and maybe the funniest film he ever made.
