The Farmer’s Wife (1928)
I’m making great progress in my Hitchcock-a-thon. I’m glad I got this one out of the way…
I have a confession. This silent was moving so slowly and the music was nothing but distracting that I put it on fast-forward. I didn’t even need to pause to read the titles. I don’t feel bad.
This movie was weird. A man searches for a new wife (strangely unaffected by the death of his late wife..) when really she was there all along. I dunno. Maybe some will think of it as a clever old rom-com but I thought it was ridiculous. The main charcter was anything but likeable, and I have a problem when the characters aren’t relatable. 2/10
