This humorous thriller was among several thirties films featuring Aileen Marson, a tragically short-lived British actress whose career briefly flourished on both sides of the Atlantic. Marson's co-stars include impeccable comedic actor and singer Billy Milton, and veteran screen villain Noah Beery; the film is directed by leading silent-era director/actor/writer Herbert Brenon - nominated for Best Director at the very first Academy Awards ceremony in 1927.
Someone At The Door is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
