creaky murder mystery
17 August 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was made at Elstree studios in 1929.It is intriguing to think that on the next stage Hitchcock could have been filming "Blackmail".Everything about this film shows it up to be an early talkie.There is virtually no editing ,very little camera movement and stagy acting.In fact you might just get eye strain watching this film.Clearly due to the problems with editing sound film the film was effectively edited in the camera.So you have a shot of 3 people in front of the camera.The person on the left hand side of the frame speaks.The camera then pans to the actor in the centre who speaks his line and then over to the actor on the right of frame.This process is repeated.It gets very monotonous.The story has a reasonably novel idea for the murder and the ship stands in for the usual stately home.Anyway if you are a fan of early talkies you will want to see this otherwise it is probably not of interest.
