1. Do you see the beginnings of the "Hitchcock touch" in this sequence? Please provide specific examples. It seemed a bit slapstick of sorts. Nothing made me believe this was a movie by Hitchcock. Knowing now what he is so well know for I didn't see the "Hitchcock touch". 2. Do you agree or disagree with Strauss, Yacowar, and Spoto assessments that this sequence contains elements, themes, or approaches that we will see throughout Hitchcock's 50-year career? I think it was so early on his career that I didn't see the the typical Hitchcock elements that he is so well known for.
