MR. HITCHCOCK'S NEXT FILM
Mr. Alfred Hitchcock, who is at present directing Mr. Charles Laughton in a film adaptation of Miss Daphne du Maurier's novel, "Jamaica Inn", will visit Hollywood this year to direct the American film based on the Swedish play Intermezzo. The chief characters in the play, which will be adapted for the screen by Mr. John Van Druten, are a famous musician, his wife, and a young girl accompanist.
