Among the rarest of Hitchcock’s features, this 1933 film is an anomalous project—a romanticized musical biography of Strauss, featuring the British singing star Jessie Matthews—and not too much should be expected of it. Still, Hitchcock’s wife, Alma Reville, is credited with co-authorship of the scenario, and it’s difficult to imagine Hitchcock making a completely impersonal film. A curiosity of the first order.
