Adapted from a play by Dartmoor novelist Eden Philpotts, direcor Alfred Hitchcock infused into this film an essence of reality such that it absolutely breathes the air of Devonshire farm life. It reflects and emphasises the clasiical rustic humour of the story, and there are outdoor scenes shot on location in a Devon farmyard and the surrounding countryside.
