A good movie

Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check it out. At first, I thought it was one of his silent features and I was quite surprised to hear some dialogs within the first 10 minutes. Apparently, this flick was not as old as I thought. Anyway, even though Alfred Hitchcock was rather dismissive about this movie (appa... read more

Like 1948's Rope, I personally feel that Number Seventeen would probably have worked better as a play, in this case as originally intended. It's interesting to see that Leon M. Lion (who I remember from The Amazing Quest Of Earnest Bliss) is credited as the main star even though he plays a secondary character, although he is probably the best thing about this film with plenty of comedic appeal.

A good movie

“Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check it out. At first, I thought it was one of his silent features and I was quite surprised to hear some dialogs within the first 10 minutes. Apparently, this flick was not as old as I thought. Anyway, even though Alfred Hitchcock was rather dismissive about this movie (apparently, he didn’t want to make it at all but his studio more or less forced him), I actually enjoyed the damned thing. Indeed, it is a rather fun and well made thriller with some really nice mood, definitely Hitchcock’s specialty. To be honest, not all the shots and scenes were great, some of them were rather awkward and weak but there were many impressive little scenes with a great play on th” read more

Similarly to Rope again, this film is technically brilliant with atmospheric, shadowy, brilliantly lighted opening scenes as well as a thrillng climatic chase between a train and a bus, but the story itself is relatively simple but very effective. In fact a lot more effective than Rope. John Stuart, despited being a Scotsman, plays a typical cinematic English gentleman of the era and Ann Casson over” read more
