Young woman kills man who tries to rape her, then finds herself
caught between investigating detective (who happens to be her
boyfriend) and a blackmailer. Hitchcock's and England's first
talking picture is story exciting, especially for fans and students
of the director's work. Originally shot as a silent; that version,
running 75 minutes, also exists (and is significantly better).
Anny Ondra's voice was dubbed by Joan Barry
because she had a thick German accent. Barry had to stand just
of the set and read Ondra's lines into a microphone as the film
Hitchcock makes his cameo appearance being bothered
by a small boy on the subway.
