In this day of DVD and Blu-ray I don’t general consider purchasing anything on VHS. Some years ago I rented a copy of Hitchcock’s THE FARMER’S WIFE on VHS and it was this version released by Republic Picture. There is NO sound track at all but the picture quality and the projected speed are excellent. So rather then do a hit and miss on finding a decent copy of this delightful romantic Hitchcock silent I jumped at a chance of getting a copy that knew had a decent transfer. Very pleased with it. Check it out!

Alfred Hitchcock: The Collection (The Lady Vanishes / The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) / Blackmail / The Farmer’s Wife / Murder! / Sabotage / The Lodger / Easy Virtue / Rich and Strange / The Sorcer’s Apprentice [TV Episode]) Review
About as shallow as the modern movie Playing for Keeps. This movie is about a man who’s wife just died and he quickly goes around shopping for women. Even though it’s played for laughs, the characters are not sympathetic and the symbolism is more obvious than a children’s book. The only reason to watch this movie is to laugh at the dated sexism and interesting acting from the time period. But the story and pacing is so bad, I could easily rate this 0 stars. I’m surprised it’s from the mastermind Alfred Hitchcock; only watch if you’re a die hard fan and hate your life. -Read Reviews-
An amusing silent flick with expressive facial close ups. Some good lines & a few laugh out loud moments. An interesting adventure into Alfred’s early days.
