CHARLES LAUGHTON TO STAR IN "JAMAICA INN"
Seton Margrave writes as follows in London "Daily Mail" of December 5: Production will begin at Elstree on Wednesday on "Jamaica Inn," the Daphne du Maurier novel. Charles Laughton will be the star, Erich Pommer will produce, and Alfred Hitchcock direct.
"Jamaica Inn" will be the last British film to be made by British ace director Alfred Hitchcock for some time, since he is due in Hollywood in February to direct "Rebecca", another Daphne du Maurier novel, for David Selznick.
