Champagne

Champagne

About

An early Hitchcock offering, this is a silent from the days when he was learning his craft in London. The story isn't overly developed: a wealthy man who worries about his daughter's irresponsible attitude tells her that his champagne business has gone bust and that she will have to seek her own fortune.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Jean Bradin, Gordon Harker, Claude Hulbert, Clifford Heatherley, Betty Balfour, Vivian Gibson
  • Director: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Writer: Eliot Stannard, Alfred Hitchcock
  • Producer: John Maxwell
  • Photographer: Jack E Cox

In a nutshell

The daughter in question is Balfour, who had a reputation for being a 'difficult' actress, but Hitchcock obtains a spirited performance from her and she virtually carries the movie - apart from some good visual drunk jokes thrown in by her director.
