Directed by Alfred Hitchcock  | 1929

Starring Anny Ondra, Sara Allgood, Charles Paton, John Longden, Donald Calthrop, Cyril Ritchard, Hannah Jones

Two versions of this masterful thriller were made, making this both Hitchcock’s last silent and his first talkie, representing the culmination of the director’s 1920s output. During an attempted rape, blonde heroine Alice (Ondra) kills her would-be attacker, only to find herself the victim of a shady blackmailer. The dazzling location shooting, at landmarks like the London Underground and Whitehall, culminates with the director’s first great suspense set-piece: a chase through, and atop, the British Museum.
