Critic Reviews for Downhill (When Boys Leave Home)
It's directed by Hitchcock with imagination and, especially in the first half, much comedy.
It's unabashed melodrama, but nevertheless wholly cinematic.
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.
