Alfred Hitchcock

Rich and Strange

83' - 1931 - Drama, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: Alfred Hitchcock Composer: Hal Dolphe With: Henry Kendall, Joan Barry, Percy Marmont, Elsie Randolph
One of Hitchcock's great early films, and an important precursor of American comedies of remarriage such as Adam's Rib, Rich and Strange is a fine example of British comic acting of the early 1930s. Hitchcock uses the voice, with its class nuance, as an important element in his satire of bourgeois life. It is the story of a young couple rescued from the boredom and monotony of work and home by a legacy which they spend on a world cruise, - with almost disastrous results. (National Film Theatre)
