Cert: U – Contains very mild language and violence
Alfred Hitchcock / UK 1935 / 1h27m / Digital
Cast: Robert Donat, Madeleine Carroll, Lucie Mannheim, Godfrey Tearle, Peggy Ashcroft.
Swept from a London music hall to the Scottish Highlands and back to the Palladium, Robert Donat’s Richard Hannay is the archetypal wrongly accused man, embarking on a quest to find the villain and prove his innocence. The model for many subsequent films, this amazingly pacy version of John Buchan’s novel is one of Hitchcock’s most fully satisfying achievements: tense, witty, effortlessly stylish and emotionally direct, it’s also his warmest, most touching movie.
