Alfred Hitchcock



Hitchcock directs this film about a woman who kills an attempted rapist in self-defense, and tries to cover it up instead of reporting the incident. It is Hitchcock’s first sound film, but a silent version was filmed simultaneously with the same cast. The movie stars Anny Ondra, John Longden, and Sara Allgood.
