YOUNG AND INNOCENT
THE GIRL WAS YOUNG
1937, BFI, 83 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Charged with murder, young Robert Tisdall (Derrick De Marney) figures he’s better able to prove his innocence on the run than in court; joining him on his quest for exoneration is the police chief’s equally fresh-faced daughter (Nova Pilbeam, the kidnapped teen in THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH and utterly beguiling here). The climactic crane shot revealing the real killer is justly famous.
