According to Alfred Hitchcock (I) in the famous interview held in 1966 by François Truffaut, the play by Eden Phillpotts, on which this movie was based, was performed 1400 times on stage in London. See more »
When Farmer Sweetland and Minta are embracing, Sweetland's hands are all the way around her in one shot then just on her arm in the next shot. See more »
Very funny. I never realized Hitchcock could do slapstick. Surprised to find the story and characters easy to follow and identify with even with the near lack of title cards. The best silent Hitchcock film I have seen and maybe the funniest film he ever made.
