Lent: Part 1

Secret Agent (1936) – Well, that sure was Peter Lorre playing a Mexican. Otherwise, this is just some pretty standard, middle-of-the-road, pre-Hollywood Hitchcock. I’m not sure what else there is to say about this except that Hitchcock’s pacing, wit, and not-casting-Peter-Lorre-as-a-Mexican got a lot better when he started working in Hollywood.

So begins Lent, 2014.
