Early Hitchock Classic
10 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed viewing this great Hitchock Classic which was created in London, England in the early talkie films and the sound and production was very poor but Herbert Marshall, (Sir John Menier) gave an outstanding performance along with Norah Baring, (Diana Baring). Sir John Menier had to serve on a jury and make a very serious decision in a murder case concerning actors and a murder that occurred behind the scenes. Sir John was persuaded by his other jurors to convict Diana Baring of this crime which he did not really feel committed this murder. Diana is sentenced to prison and possibly death, but Sir John has a deep concern that she is innocent and decides to start his own investigation into this murder case in order to obtain Diana an appeal. This story goes very deep into this investigation and there are many suspects involved which adds greatly to this very secret murder mystery. Enjoy.
