From Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of suspense, nine of his earliest films running from the silent film era to the invention of talkies.
Born in London in 1899, by the age of sixteen Hitchcock had taken a serious interest in cinema and found himself most influenced, both technically and visually by the early masters of silent film, Griffith, Murnau and Fritz Lang. In the early twenties, Hitchcock's training as a draftsman enabled him to take a job designing little cards for the then fledgling silent film industry.
IN 1929, Hitchock directed Blackmail, hailed as a film which used sound and dialogue with more flair and imagination than any Hollywood or European film of the time. In particular, Hitchcock's inventive and expressionist use of sound demonstrated that the new technology opened a new realm of possibilities.
In the wake of Blackmail, there were searches for new challenges. These included an adaptation of a high profile West End play, The Skin Game (1931), two more thrillers Murder! (1930), Number Seventeen (1932), and an intriguingly odd martial drama, the appropriately titled Rich and Stranger (1932).
Presented together for the first time, with many of them unavailable in the UK before, these nine films are a must for any film enthusiast and Hitchcock fan.
