Audience Reviews for Young and Innocent

  • Nov 06, 2018
    Once again a early work by Hitchcock that makes me think that his English years were his best years. The wrong man (the photogenic Derrick De Marney), accused of murder (And the rational behind this is not really important) and on the run, falls for the young woman (the equally photogenic Nova Pilbeam) who helps him try to prove his innocence. Romance While On The Run it might've been called. It's a sterling presentation all in all, and perhaps proof for those Brits that there's was a superior culture. Hitchcock's England is indeed enchanting. Loved this.

    "Young And Innocent" is about the story of a man wrongly accused of commiting a crime. It's a whodunnit picture where the main charcter must try to prove his innocence. This is the sort of stories Alfred Hitchcock would later be known for, although i'm not sure if this film would be one of his best works. Hitchcock was starting to mold and shape his skills as a filmmaker where two, three years later would go to America and establish himself as serious talent.

    It's entertaining and I recommend it only for those who feel like they have to see each and every work of Alfred Hitchcock. "Young and innocent" has lots of funny situations and dialogs, in fact it's more a comedy thriller.

    This is a good attempt at the story of a man who has to prove his innocence, but I didn't like the ending, plus it's a predictable movie. I kind of liked it, but kind of didn't, so I say it's average.
