I see early touches of vouyerism and his affinity for blondes. These would be recurring themes throughout his career. I don't think being a silent film hurt this at all.
I haven't seen this movie nor have I heard of it until now. From other film noir that I have seen the crane shot almost brings us into another world where we will observe the story. Dream like almost. Bette Davis seems like the classic femme fatale that will surely give the protagonist problem. Her cold calculating demenor portrays her as a woman with a plan and she will make sure that it succeeds.
