This review is from: Stage Fright  [DVD] (DVD)
As some reviewers have pointed out, this Hitchcock film is not as suspenseful, intricate or scary as many of his later films. If that is what you are looking for, then this is probably not the film for you. However, if you would like an entertaining film from the 1940s - quite innocent in terms of manners and plot - with several wonderful actors, then give this one a try. It has the inimitable Alistair Sim (playing it straight this time as a very supportive father) and Marlene Dietrich (in a very Dietrich role), Jane Wyman (very good as the plucky heroine) and Michael Wilding (as a debonair policeman). There is little "fright" in this film - in fact this rather old-fashioned film is quite cozy and perfect for a rainy afternoon.
