The Farmer's Wife  (Alfred Hitchcock, 1928)

(Corndog, since you enjoyed this movie, I'm dying to know the running time of your DVD copy.)

Wow, 2009...I am sure my opinion of the film will have changed, but I definitely have a recollection of being entertained. If I recall, it was a film that I sat down to write my review with a 3/4 rating in mind, and then talked myself up to 3.5 (FWIW).

I will have to look to see the runtime, but I also remember it being long, so my bet is on the 129 minutes.

I happened onto a copy of the "Alfred Hitchcock: The Legend Begins" box set, and its version of The Farmer's Wife runs 98 minutes. I've rarely been so tempted to rewatch a film I hated.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Ha, that makes me feel a little better about liking it as much as I did.
