A fairly deadly case of canned theater that's pretty close to what Hitchcock many years later would refer to as 'photographs of people talking.'

Three-quarters of the film is just photographed stage play -- excellently photographed, but slow in action.

A faithful Casey adaptation, but one that's stagebound and lackluster.

It had nothing to do with cinema, Hitchcock himself had said of his adaptation of Sean O'Casey play, though it's well acted by Sara Allgood and the rest of the ensemble

Hitch gets a chance to flex his cinematic muscle with a predictably dramatic ending. Alas, it is too late to save what is essentially a theatrical experience.

By its failure to blend the two poles of drama the film resolves itself into virtually two plays.

Though well photographed, the action is incredibly slow for Hitchcock.

Static medium shots keep the actors in full view, yet the film is as much of a visual experiment as Blackmail or Number Seventeen
