“Set in a remote Isle of Man fishing community (but shot in Cornwall), Hitchcock’s penultimate silent feature is one of the best and most mature works of his early career. The story follows two boyhood friends who take markedly different paths in adulthood: one becomes a fisherman, the other a lawyer, but both fall in love with the same woman—a complex, sensual performance from Anny Ondra, part vulnerable waif, part flirtatious femme fatale—and clearly the reason Hitch cast her in his suspense masterpiece Blackmail later that year.” (Bryony Dixon, BFI) A restoration by the BFI National Archive in association with STUDIOCANAL Restoration funding provided by Daniel & Joanna Friel and Ronald T Shedlo. Additional funding provided by Deluxe 142.
