130. October 13, 2010 - Easy Virtue (1928)

I think that I may have screwed up the order with some of these early Hitchcock films, but oh well. I'll get them all in at some point. This is another slow, overly-dramatic story that shows how good of a director he WILL be but isn't yet. The tragic heroine is slandered, deemed as having "easy virtue" (sleeping around), even though she's innocent and her past disrupts her present. At least it's short. Though, I have to say that this is another movie we are lucky still to have available. Bring on the good Hitchcock!
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
