Hitchcock's first feature, shot in Munich; uneven account of a
pair of chorus girls, one (Valli) sweet and knowing, the other
(Geraghty) a waif who becomes a glamorous bitch. Forgettable silent
melodrama served as an apprenticeship for its director.
film was almost doomed when Austrian customs officials confiscated the
film stock on the journey to do some location shooting.
Although shot a year before, the film wasn't actually
released until after "The Lodger" was a massive hit.
