Drama, Romance, Silent
This rare Hitchcock film, from 1929, was his last silent. The Isle of Man provides a vertiginous backdrop for a classic Hitchcock triangle, involving Anny Ondra and Carl Brisson. It's no masterpiece, but it's certainly something to see: Hitchcock's early work is full of surprises, dramatic and stylistic, including such trivial delights as the first recorded freeze frame (in Champagne). These are the experiments from which his genius grew.
