Hitchcock in Cape Town
18 May 2014 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

Cape Town was the setting for a few thrillers in the sixties, partly because of its scenic beauty and partly because it was pretty cheap to film there. The Second Sin is a wholly South African film and it's not too bad. A Hitchcockian legal thriller with a maguffin, a blonde and a twist, the film makes full use of the city's landmark mountain, cable-way and beaches. It even has a sharp little live music scene featuring The Staccatos and the score, in general, is excellent. Gert van den Bergh dominates as the wise old advocate, Anton Rossouw while James White is solid as the put-upon Michael Gray. Very hard to find, but worth a look if old-fashioned courtroom thrillers take your fancy.
