Yorkshire Post (25/Sep/1931) - Back to the Sub-Titles



Back to the Sub-Titles

Alfred Hitchcock's new film, "Rich and Strange," shortly to be presented in London, will contain no fewer than 30 of the old-fashioned sub-titles, introduced as "first-aid" to dialogue.

The results of this bold step (says Mr. G.A. Atkinson, in the "Daily Telegraph") will be watched with interest by film producers throughout the world, as the feeling has been growing for some time that popular audiences, at least, have found it neither easy nor congenial to concentrate on a story indicated only in spoken words.
