Summary
  • The Skin Game is based on a play by John Galsworthy. The story revolves around two rival families, the Hillcrests and the Hornblowers, and the disastrous results of the feud over land
  • Blackmail is based on the play Blackmail by Charles Bennett, as adapted by Hitchcock, with dialogue by Benn Levy. Having began production as a silent film, the studio, British International Pictures, decided to convert it to sound during shooting. As an early "talkie", the film is frequently cited by film historians as a landmark film, and is often considered the first British sound feature film. "Alice White, detective Frank Webber's girlfriend, is invited by an artist to visit his studio. The man tries to rape Alice and she kills him with a knife to defend herself. A criminal sees the murder and he keeps the lady's glove from the crime scene in order to blackmail her. Frank is assigned to the murder case." IMDB
  • Easy Virtue is a silent film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and loosely based on a play by Noel Coward about the unfortunate heroine Larita and her "easy virtue."
  • Jamaica Inn stars Charles Laughton and Maureen O'Hara. It was adapted from Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name. The film is a period piece set in Cornwall in 1820; the real Jamaica Inn still exists, and is a pub on the edge of Bodmin Moor. An Irish orphan girl goes to live with an uncle who is discovered to be involved in a group of smuggling highwaymen ravaging the area
  • Number Seventeen is based on a stage play by J. Jefferson Farjeon. This classy comedy-thriller is the story of an unsuspecting innocent hobo who accidentally stumbles across the hideout of a gang of jewel thieves. The splendid final chase sequence involving a train and a bus is exhilarating. The Ring is a silent, black and white film directed and written by Hitchcock. The story focused on a love triangle between two men and a woman. The film features photography tricks Hitchcock would use again years later in films like The Man Who Knew Too Much
