A pretty damn good old Hitch film worth checking out. The first 1/4 of the film is quite brilliant in great Hitchcockian fashion and I especially liked the quirkiness of the characters in the jury scene. Way ahead of 12 Angry Men
Hitch manages to use sound in a compelling way, such as the "Tristan" scene, but overall there is too much dialog or "explaining" for my taste. As a result, this film feels very uneven. I think Hitch is still struggling to achieve a fluid rhythm in his talkies.
Classic Hitchcock story about a wrong (wo)man set-up as a killer, a race against time to find a solution and a villain in woman clothing. The first moments of this film is pure Hitchcock and show that the master was starting to get his fingerprints on his thrillers as we witness the reaction of some neighbors to a off-screen murder. There is also a memorable ending when the true killer confronts his own inner voices.
