Early Hitchcock

Before Hollywood beckoned, Alfred Hitchcock directed some of the best British films ever made, many of them suspenseful thrillers that predicted his later, more famous American movies.

From silent crime dramas clearly influenced by German expressionism to witty thrillers featuring sparring couples, these are essential films for any cinema lover wishing to know more about the master of suspense.
