IA #89: Young and Innocent (1937)

 The Girl Was Young (1937) on IMDb

Here’s another Alfred Hitchcock entry, sometimes called The Girl Was Young. It touches a lot of his common themes; an innocent man in the wrong place at the wrong time has to dodge the police while he finds the real killer. In this case, he’s assisted by a beautiful, young, innocent police constable’s daughter.

Hitchcock’s cameo comes at the 16-minute mark as he holds a tiny camera outside the courthouse. His crane shot near the end is legendary. And this solid all-British production is a worthy entry in the Internet Archive Top 100.
