This atypical Alfred Hitchcock effort is a cautionary fable which lends credence to the old saw "Love flies out the door when money flies in the window." Joan Barry and Henry Kendall play a young married couple who suddenly come into an inheritance. Bored with their working-class existence, hero and heroine embark upon a world cruise, and it isn't long before Barry gets romantically involved with a landed-gentry gentleman. Meanwhile, Kendall is swept off his feet by a phony princess, who tricks

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
And so it is: this early (1932) Hitchcock film shows more signs of the artist to come than any of his other British movies.
... a mature exploration of personal disappointment and longing for a fantasy that doesn't exist and an adult confrontation of wandering affections and romantic betrayal...
Slight but pleasant film that has some of the Master's later touches but disappoints more than it pleases.
Not really good, but fascinating departure for Hitchcock
