Although this film was a box-office failure in 1932, it later had admirers. One of them was the movie historian William K. Everson
. In an Everson and Sir Alfred Hitchcock
interview in 1972, Everson showed his admiration for this movie, and also praised the bus and train chase scene. Hitchcock was delighted by Everson's enthusiasm, and went on to explain how one of the sequences in the bus and train chase scene was shot. See more
Hitchcock uses models quite well for the bus and train sequence, given the age of the film. However as the model train approaches the ferry it is seen to have about 8 carriages. When Doyle is being pursued across the carriages, it can be seen that there are many more than eight carriages - at least five behind the middle carriage (where Ben and Nora are) and at least five in front of this middle carriage.
