This silent romantic comedy, the first film version of Eden Philpotts’ play The Farmer’s Wife, was directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The story revolves around a rugged widowed farmer (Samuel Sweetland) in search of a new bride, who realises that his ideal mate has been under his nose the whole time. Hitchcock’s seventh feature film is a wonderfully crafted, charming comedy of rural manners.

Part of the Dartmoor Film Festival Wed 7 to Wed 28 Mar, a celebration of RAMM’s exhibition Dartmoor: A Wild and Wondrous Region, in partnership with Exeter Phoenix. Introductory talk included.
