humourous and surreal love story

While the story is one that I've seen a lot, especially in films of this period, this movie stands out stylistically. It has the appearance of an early experimental film. I wouldn't be surprised to see an excerpt in the Unseen Cinema collection. The Folies Bergere montage is very surreal, as is most of the quick cutting/ jump shots and industrial scenes in the first third of the film. The numerous Art Deco sets are outstanding.

There's a lot more humour in Rich and Strange than is Hitchcock's usual style. It holds up pretty well in this day and age, except for the unfortunate joke about the meal served by the Chinese sailors. If you can forgive him that, this is a fun movie to watch.
