Summary
  • Blackmail : Rebelling against the possessiveness of her police boyfriend, a young woman agrees to pose for an artist. Resisting his advances, she ends up murdering him in self-defence. Her boyfriend is assigned to the case, and soon learns the killer's identity, but so has someone else ... winding up in a dramatic chase around the British Museum. Originally begun as a silent film, it was decided mid-production to make both a silent and a sound version; in the sound version, Ondra's accented voice was dubbed over by English actress Joan Barry
  • The 39 steps : The best known of Hitchcock's British films, this civilised spy yarn follows the escapades of Richard Hannay, who stumbles into a conspiracy that involves him in a hectic chase across the Scottish moors - a chase in which he is both the hunter and the hunted. This classic Hitchcock "wrong man" thriller encapsulates themes that anticipate the director's biggest American films, and is a standout among his early works
  • Sabotage : The manager of a theatre becomes the focus of an elaborate and detailed enquiry by detectives, on suspicion of political sabotage
