Nia Jones on Frenzy

We asked members of the guardian.co.uk/film community to tell us about their preferred films from the master of suspense. Today's contribution is from Nia Jones, a freelance writer

Ron Goodwin's musical score beats proudly during Frenzy's opening credits, as an aerial shot takes us over London and towards Tower Bridge. Hitch gets his trademark cameo in early, sporting a black suit and a bowler hat, poised in the crowd as Sir George (John Boxer) delivers a speech to a riverside crowd.

The naked body of a woman is soon seen floating in the Thames, a tie knotted around her throat. "The Necktie Murderer" is at large, and Scotland Yard has the crimes pinned on innocent man Richard Blaney (Jon Finch). Finding the actual murderer and exacting revenge is Blaney's only path to salvation.

Based on Arthur La Bern's novel Goodbye Piccadilly, Farewell Leicester Square, »
