The Farmer’s Wife (1928)

Wed 21 Mar, 2 to 4pm
RAMM Gallery 20

This silent romantic comedy, the first film version of Eden Philpotts’ play The Farmer’s Wife, was directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The story revolves around a rugged widowed farmer (Samuel Sweetland) in search of a new bride, who realises that his ideal mate has been under his nose the whole time. Hitchcock’s seventh feature film is a wonderfully crafted, charming comedy of rural manners.
