Trivia

Arguably the first film directed by Alfred Hitchcock (along with Number 13 (1922)/ aka Mrs. Peabody, after several years as a title designer. He was originally hired as assistant director, but when the producer got into an argument with the director and fired him, he promoted Hitchcock to full director. Only one reel of this two-reel film is known to survive. See more »

Co-directed by (an uncredited) Alfred Hitchcock
1 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An independently produced short film, a remake of an earlier film from 1914, (also written by Hugh Croise) with a run time of 20 minutes, filmed at Islington Studios in January 1923, and released in February 1923.

Some sources say that the original director, Hugh Croise, had fallen ill during production, and Hitchcock filled in during the remaining scenes. Other sources claim Croise was fired during production, and Hitchcock filled in during the remaining scenes. Some sources also list Seymour Hicks as a third co-director.

It appears to have been a comedy, but its plot remains a mystery. Of this two-reel short film, only one reel allegedly survives, and it has not been screened since its original release, despite the fact that several people have rated the movie here on IMDb.
