Hitchcock’s only original screenplay yielded one of his finest silent films. Against the backdrop of a traveling carnival, an uneasy love triangle forms when a boxer’s wife takes a fancy to the new heavyweight champ. The Ring is “the most visually sophisticated of Hitchcock's silent pictures” (Jonathan Rosenbaum), replete with psychologically charged camera movements and montages, evoking one character’s drunken stupor with a shot that seems to melt off the screen.
