What Will He Do
24 May 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Solid Hitchcock, well cast with good twist ending. Coquettish young wife Virgilia (Moore) is cheating on grumpy middle-age husband Joseph (Merrill). Worse, most all their high-class friends know about it, while Merrill just sits and broods. He's being made a fool, but what will he do. Complicating things is one of Virgilia's old boyfriends, Albert (Hewitt), who seems more interested in being the proper gentleman than anything else.

Moore is so good as the sexy flirt, it's not hard to imagine her lack of discretion. Then too, Merrill comes across as both enigmatic and slightly menacing, so he's perfect for building suspense. Nothing special about this 30-minutes, just a good solid Hitchcock entry.
