Alfred Hitchcock's Number 17 (1932) is one of his earlier films. Various people meet in an empty house and a stolen diamond necklace is the center of attention. Who's after it? Who has it? Who is going to end up with it? Who might die for it?
We watched it via Netflix. The sound quality was poor and the picture quality was poor (hey, it's OLD). Like many older films, acting is melodramatic and super corny. But you have to hand it to Alfred Hitchcock for suspense, and for more complex story lines than what were being made at this time.
I can't say I loved it, but I do enjoy working my way through Alfred Hitchcock's collection of films. He really was a master.
I wasn't able to find a movie trailer (imagine that? Maybe they didn't even make them in 1932), but here is a link to the entire film on YouTube, or you can watch it below.
