THE PLEASURE GARDEN
1926, British Film Institute, 90 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Fans of Alfred Hitchcock will likely notice familiar visual cues and themes in his directorial debut, which was released only after THE LODGER had proven a hit. American silent star Virginia Valli plays Patsy Brand, a chorus girl at the Pleasure Garden Theatre who befriends aspiring performer Jill Cheyne (Carmelita Geraghty). While Jill trifles with her many suitors, Patsy is faithful to her man - and it almost costs her her life.

Jane Wyman plays a struggling actress who helps to hide fellow student Richard Todd when he's accused of killing his lover's husband. Marlene Dietrich co-stars in this murder mystery set in the world of the theater.
