Under the Greenwood Tree is a 1929 British historical drama film directed by Harry Lachman and starring Marguerite Allan, Nigel Barrie and Wilfred Shine. It is an adaptation of the 1872 novel Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy.

Production and release

The film's sets were designed by Wilfred Arnold. It was made at Elstree Studios by the leading British company of the era British International Pictures.[1] Originally intended as a silent film, but following the arrival of sound it had songs and dialogue added using the RCA system. It was released in September 1929 around the same time as The American Prisoner, both films following on from the company's first sound release, Alfred Hitchcock's Blackmail, in June.[2]

A review in Close Up suggested it "has perhaps the best direction yet produced from a British studio".[3]
