Champagne – 1928 | 86mins | Drama | B&W – Silent

Plot Synopsis

Champagne

Champagne, was made in English and German versions. The story line is as thin as mountain air and is basically boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy finally gets girl. Hitchcock thinks that this is one of his worst films ever, but it does have some funny bits, such as a drunk who walks with a stagger from side to side on a ship that is very steady. When the ship starts to roll, though, the drunk walks straight and everybody else staggers. The film was trivial but not unlike some of the other losers with which Hitchcock was connected in his early years.
