Young and Innocent (1937) – reviewed by George

This is not just one of my favorite Hitchcock movies (his 22nd), it’s one of my favorite movies, period. It begins with a spat, which would be a marital spat except that the wife, the actress Christine Clay (Pamela Carme), … Continue reading

Sabotage (1936) – reviewed by George
