A Teutonic experiment in ambiguity and an astringent comedy of wandering relationships, Alfred Hitchcock's first talkie offers scene upon scene of ingenious synergy of camera and meaning
It's a more than adequate though primitive murder mystery story that's enhanced by a series of marvelous technical innovations for its time.
| Original Score: B
Early British production by Hitchcock is entertaining.
