Famous for being Britain's, and Alfred Hitchcock's, first "talkie," this digitally re-mastered classic is noted for its innovative use of sound; it is a psychological thriller that confirmed Sir Alfred as one of England's great directors. Adapted from the stage play by Charles Bennett, it stars Anny Ondra, as Alice White, John Longden, as detective Frank Webber, and Donald Calthrop, as the blackmailer, Tracy. Because of her German accent, Ondra's voice had to be dubbed over by Joan Barry. In the story Alice kills a man with a knife in self-defense, who attempted to sexually assault her. Webber tries to cover up the incident; not realizing she was spotted leaving the scene by Tracey, who tries to blackmail her. Worth noting is the use of the word knife in the now legendary breakfast scene; also Hitchcock appears as a man on the subway. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 29/10DE JSCA 90 min.
