Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

United Kingdom 1929 101 mins. In English

In a remote fishing village 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—smolderingly sensual Anny Ondra, whom Hitchcock also cast in his suspense masterpiece BLACKMAIL. 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.”—BFI.
