Young and Innocent

Young and Innocent

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock • 1937 • United Kingdom
Starring Derrick De Marney, Nova Pilbeam, Percy Marmont

Alfred Hitchcock’s delightfully entertaining, often overlooked tale of a wrongly accused man follows a young writer (Derrick De Marney) who, when he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of an actress, goes on the run with the chief constable’s daughter (Nova Pilbeam) as his only help. Romance and thrills ensue, with Hitchcock’s master touch apparent in a memorable children’s-party set piece and an elaborately choreographed crane shot used to reveal the killer.
