As Emily and Commander Gordon are riding in a car together, when they are both in the picture they are close to each other but when only one is in the picture, they seem to be farther apart as if the other is no longer there. See more »
Hello Fred. I think you'll like me in this dress when it's done. Oh, have you broken your umbrella?

For an early 'talking picture', this is an excellent film. Hitchcock fans will probably be disappointed, but I was not. Having been born in London in the 30's, I found the opening sequences fascinating and so well directed and edited. Anyone interested in Hitchcock should at least view the first 10 minutes or so of this film. One begins to see what a great director Hitch was - even without the mystery and horror.
