Alfred Hitchcock makes his feature film debut as a director with this rather mundane silent film about showgirls and dancing and whatnot. It is a far cry from his Master of Suspense peak years. The only noteworthy thing about the movie is it's director, and that is really only because he went on to do such great things in the industry. This is just his humble beginning.
An endearing directorial debut with a dark edge, the stories of two betrayed lovers nosedive rather predictably towards a resolution, but from the beginning Hitchcock shows his eye for shots and sense of the sinister.
