1928, Rialto, 107 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Farmer Sweetland (Jameson Thomas) has been a widower for years when his daughter’s marriage inspires him to look for a new wife. Methodical in his search for a bride, he enlists his steadfast housekeeper, Minta (THE RING’s Lillian Hall-Davis), to help him come up with a list of possible spouses - who each put the proud Sweetland through the gauntlet. Hitchcock’s sense of humor is rarely shown to better effect than in this touching film.
