The 25 Year Old Alfred Hitchcock
16 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's not a coincidence that Hitchcock wrote before he began directing. Cecil B. DeMille also wrote screenplays before he officially immersed himself in directing and producing. Hitchcock is a lover of novels and plays, and in this film we see him bringing a stage play to the screen. However, I did not find this engaging viewing.
