WEEK 6: The Farmer’s Wife (1928)


Six weeks along on Weekly Hitch, and we find ourselves – and Hitchcock – at a crossroads, as he undertakes his first comedy, and his first film in a rural setting. It’s 1928’s silent adaptation of the popular stage comedy, The Farmer’s Wife.

Weekly Hitch is a project in which I watch as many of Hitchcock’s films as possible, in chronological order, week by week. It’s like a really nerdy friend sending you letters about movies, except it’s me and all the movies are by one person and it’s on the internet and also you’ve got nothing better to do.
