The Film Programme: Alfred Hitchcock (BBC Radio, 02/Feb/2007)

Programme Description

Film historian Matthew Sweet assesses Alfred Hitchcock’s early films – as a new box set is released - including Britain’s very first talkie Blackmail (with Anny Ondra), Murder! (starring Herbert Marshall) and his first silent feature The Ring set in and around a boxing ring. His experimental use of sound predates the work of the avant garde, and provide a striking comparison with his own later work, including notable performances from Anny Ondra and Lillian Hall-Davis.
