David Keyes

It remains the most complex and enlivening of Hitchcock's earliest films.

Enormously entertaining mystery-comedy, that is also filled with feminist and political commentary.

this director at this moment in his career, back when he was still more clever than cruel.

Hitchcock comedy thriller is tame old-school fun.

It's a flawless mix of paranoid suspense, pacing, timing and even comedy.

Mais interessado em explorar a inabalável fleuma britânica como fonte de humor do que em realmente criar um suspense intrigante, este é um dos últimos exemplares da primeira fase da carreira de Hitchcock e diverte mais do que impressiona.

The formula of an innocent thrust into a nightmare would fascinate Hitch for decades to come, but here he packs the tale with strong characters and important details.

This film, minus the deft and artistic handling of the director, Alfred Hitchcock, despite its cast and photography, would not stand up for Grade A candidacy.

Maybe the best of Hitchcock's early, pre-USA productions.

Both a neat comment on Britain's dilemma in the build-up to the impending war with Germany (to appease or not to appease?) and also a cracking piece of entertainment.

Naturally, nobody builds suspense like 'The Master', but the appealing team of Lockwood and Redgrave receves sterling back-up from twinkly Dame May and Cecil Parker as the spineless adulterer.

Hitchcock's second-to-last British movie before decamping to LA is a fun romp celebrating the stiff-upper-lippedness of our great nation.

This is vintage Hitchcock, with the pacing and superb editing that marked not only his 30s style but eventually every film that had any aspirations whatever to achieving suspense and rhythm.

Very much of its time (in a good way), and very enjoyable.

[R]epresents Hitchcock's work at its most charming.... [T]he suspense is tonic rather than truly frightening, and almost comically glamorous.
