Hitchcock filmed the silent and talkie versions simultaneously. Personally, I prefer the silent version. In the talkie, because of her czech accent, Anny Ondra had to be dubbed live while filming, stunting her performance a bit.

Also this has my favorite (and longest) Hitchcock cameo about 10 minutes in!

This film has two releases, a silent version and soundtracked dialog. However, it was shot to be silent, and only later did the studio request voices be recorded to meet the demands of the times.

Sorry Ben Mankiewicz (TCM) but if that was a silent movie, I must be hearing things. There was enough dialog in there to definitly qualify as a talkie. I'd like to view the talkie version to see the difference. Maybe then I'd understand why this is considered a silent.
