When Mrs. Hillcrest finds out that Chloe Hornblower was a prostitute, she uses this secret to blackmail the speculator and force him to stop his business.Written by

The nine thousand five hundred pounds sterling paid for the land at the auction would equate to about forty-three thousand one hundred U.S. dollars at the time, or six hundred sixty-four thousand U.S. dollars in 2017. See more »
Hello. I say, I see they're cutting down the trees in Longmeadow.

On average, this is perhaps the lowest-rated of all Hitchcock's films among professional critics, but while I cannot call it good, in my opinion it is not even in Hitchcock's bottom 10. Like his worst, "Juno and the Paycock" from the previous year, it is essentially a filmed play, but it is somewhat less stage-bound and certainly more interesting, if not very. At least one scene (the auction) is distinctly Hitchcockian in style, and Phyllis Konstam is wonderful.
