On the Isle of Man, two boyhood friends—one a lawyer, the other a fisherman—are torn apart when they discover they are in love with the same woman (a smolderingly sensual Ondra). Shooting in Cornwall, Hitchcock makes striking use of the dramatic natural surroundings and vertiginous seaside cliffs in “one of the best and most mature works of his early career” (Bryony Dixon, BFI).
