It remains a crucial insight into the development of one of the cinema's greatest artists, and so, essential viewing.

Well photographed and mounted, it contains all the gadgets of the pet Alfred Hitchcock technique, from quick cutting to skillful dialog blending.

It's enjoyable on its own terms, but is a far cry from Hitch's better films.

The denouement of the intriguing plot is pretty distasteful by today's standards.
