A rarely screened Hitchcock oddity from 1928. It's a comedy, ostensibly, in which a millionaire pretends to be broke in order to discourage his daughter's marriage to a man he considers unsuitable. She gets a job hustling drinks in a Parisian cabaret, where one of the most popular boissons is the very champagne her father manufactures. Though made on assignment (as a vehicle for the popular British comedienne Betty Balfour), the film is permeated with Hitchcock's characteristic sense of instability, complete with subthemes of voyeurism and vertigo. The direction is lively and often overinventive, as was frequently the case during the early, experimental phase of his career. With Jack Trevor and Gordon Harker.
