Hitchcock didn't like his ninth and last silent film, but for viewers who love his work, it bears some surprises, including subtle humor.

It's no masterpiece, but it's certainly something to see: Hitchcock's early work is full of surprises, dramatic and stylistic.

The stern morality melodrama contains very little of the filmmaking techniques that would later make Hitchcock a master of his craft.

The Hall Caine novel from which this film was adapted is a weak one, but the director has done his best with it.

Hardly essential, but not the worthless and banal work that Hitchcock would have liked to dismiss it as.
