Early Hitchcock

Hitchcock Collection


Alfred Hitchcock was an exceptional silent filmmaker before he moved to sound (and one could argue he remained a pre-eminent silent filmmaker throughout his career). This Region 2 DVD set of early Hitchcock films has just been released, containing two of the ten silent features that he made (if you include the silent version of Blackmail). The nine-DVD set features the silents The Ring and The Manxman, and the sound films Blackmail, Champagne, Murder, Rich and Strange, The Skin Game and Number Seventeen. The extras include a scene from the silent version of Blackmail, an alternative ending to Murder, archive footage of actress Anny Ondra, and a 50-minute documentary Hitchcock’s Early Works.
