The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934)

By 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 28, 2018 From 4 Star Films

Although Hitchcock did many riffs off the same themes, he very rarely tried to do the same film twice over.

Facts about

Ambrose Chapel was filmed at St. Saviour's Church Hall in St. Saviour's Road, Brixton Hill, London. St. Saviour's was sold off by the Church of England in the 1970s and has since been torn down.
On the poster play bill, we can see the date of the Albert Hall concert : Monday 6 June at 8.

And the movie is supposed to begin on Saturday, June the 4th and finish on Monday, June the 6th 1955.
