Sat. Night @ the Movies – Hitchcock’s Young and Innocent

AKA Young and Innocent

AKA Young and Innocent

The Lady Vanishes and The 39 Steps are considered the best of Hitchcock’s British films. I’d agree, but I’m also very partial to Young and Innocent. I think Nova Pilbeam steals the film (if the leading star can steal a film). It’s a shame she didn’t do more films. She’s also in the original version of The Man Who Knew Too Much in which she plays the daughter. I think I read somewhere that Hitchcock was considering her for the lead actress in Suspicion. But producer David Selznick felt he needed a bigger star. If only she had been cast in the movie perhaps she would have been a major Hollywood star. In addition she had the perfect name for a Science Fiction Heroine of the 40s–Nova Pilbeam, Maiden of the Spaceways! Has a nice ring to it, eh?
