Motion Picture Studio reports that John Gliddon and the Lark’s Gate production have returned from Egypt and Nice, ‘and are now working like fury at the old F.P.-Lasky Studios at Islington’.

The same issue reported that Donald Crisp was preparing At Your Service at the Kingsbury studios, in Hertfordshire. Despite early talk, he had not used Poole Street.

It is possible that Hitchcock worked on Lark’s Gate. He was kept on at Poole Street as part of a skeleton crew who came with the studio when it was hired out. But the details of this arrangement are sketchy at best, and Hitchcock never mentioned this particular film. If he had gone to Egypt it sems likely that it would be recorded somewhere, and yet there is no sign of it.
