Based on Noel Coward's play, this Hitchcock critique of the the upper class, centers on a disreputable woman, a heroine type that he would return to in later films, such as Notorious and Marnie.

An overlooked film despite the abundance of invention

The main reason to stop on PBS when the network airs "Easy Virtue" a few months from now is to witness Biel's complete departure.

September 9, 2008
The first half of the film, an addition detailing events only described in the play, is pure Hitchcock, its combination of conciseness and idiosyncrasy demonstrating his mastery of silent narration.

The film's conclusion is rushed, but the movie still has much to admire as a catty drama about scandal and scorn.
August 22, 2006
Creative silent film, with many links to later Hitchcock.

Sticks in the ribs like over baked mush.

Coward's strength was sparkling dialogue, which makes his work a poor fit for the silent cinema.

The problem is, of course, that the movie was silent and Coward's dialogue -- even in a minor play -- is indispensable.
