The black sheep of a prosperous family's life begins its downward spiral when he is expelled from school after shielding a friend from punishment. Following several desultory adventures, Novello weds faithless actress Isabel Jeans, who divests him of what little money he has and runs off with another man. Only when he is at his lowest is Novello forgiven by his family.

It's directed by Hitchcock with imagination and, especially in the first half, much comedy.

Though not one of Hitchcock's best silents, Downhill, based on theatrical sketches, intriduces themes and images, such as the shared guilt and the prominence of staircases, that would recur in his future, better films.

Blame Novello for this turkey, Hitchcock did all he could to make this creaky story work with some creative visuals.

Astutely keyed to Murnau, Hitchcock finds visual invention everywhere
