“the worst version of Man Who Knew too Much” - omg accurate
I mean, I have watched that version with pleasure, but I started watching the restored first version and was amazed at how much better it was, even though it was a little slower. I got about halfway through and there wasn’t any gross-ass “married love means ladies have to die, sweetheart” bullshit between the parents, no creepy, scary “Shhh honey let me just medicate you into submission so you don’t get your icky feelings on me” from the husband, none of the stuff that was in the Day/Stewart version.
It’s been so long since I watched that one…Hitchcock seems both enchanted by sexism, and yet surrounded himself in real life with intelligent, opinionated women, and gave many female roles in his films powerful aspects. I’d like to think he was criticizing that kind of gender crap, but it’s really difficult to realistically give a man from that time period the benefit of the doubt on that. What do you think?

Eartha Kitt slamming and shutting down street harassment and objectification in Anna Lucasta (1958)
After filming a fight scene with Fredric March, Carole Lombard had to take the next day off to recover from her scratches and bruises. To discourage March’s attentions, she invited him to her dressing room one night; after preliminary fumbling, March discovered to his disgust that she was wearing a rubber dildo. He never bothered her again.
When he saw that she had a prosthetic penis, he became afraid that she would treat him exactly as he wanted to treat her.
