Trivia

This is the first Sir Alfred Hitchcock movie more widely available. Number 13 (1922) is thought to be lost, and only one reel of Always Tell Your Wife (1923) has survived (and even then it's next-to-impossible to track down). See more »

Goofs

The dog, shown chewing up some clothing, disappears in the wide-angle shots of the apartment. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Pleasure Garden theatergoer: That's an exquisite chorus line, Mr. Hamilton.
Oscar Hamilton: Meet Patsy Brand.
Pleasure Garden theatergoer: I had to meet you because I was charmed by that lovely curl of hair.
Patsy Brand: [detaches the curl and presents it] Then I give it to you and hope you have a nice time. Now that wasn't a very clever line, was it?

It's ok

This film is alright. It's definitely not one of Hitchcock's best, but it's not bad. The score isn't as annoying as other silent movie scores that drone the same chords over and over. It's pretty entertaining, the humour works well some of the same.
