This film was the first clear creative peak in Hitchcock’s British period, and the first fully successful film in his deepening oeuvre.

This film introduced one key Hitchcock first: the notion of the wrong man, the innocent bystander accused, pursued or punished for a crime he didn’t commit.

Nonstop string of action sequences, chase scenes punctuated by witty dial... read more

He takes her back to his fl... read more

Robert Donat no doubt was the King of the 30's. He was one of the best talents to hit the screen with such delicate and precise acting that leaves you in wonder. A charming, graceful actor and a talent beyond it's time.

Robert Donat appears in this Hitchcock classic as Richard Hannay, a man wrongfully accused of murder and must prove his innocence in a sure-fire Oscar role. Accompan... read more

Movie Reviews (101-150) (50 movies items)

" The ultimate film which introduced (to my knowledge) a couple that "loved-hated each other and were trapped together with handcuffs like in matrimony". All the classic Hitchcock elements are here in what is one of Hitchcock's best British productions. It is a fast-moving"wrong man on the run" film with great villains and a satisfying "MacGuffin" which only problem is that it ends a little bit too abruptly after the threat is eliminated. "

"First viewing - July 15th I’m still trying to catch up on Hitch’s films (or at least the ones with good reputations), so I picked up a pair from the library to watch together. This one took me a little bit to get into due to a slow & fairly weak opening, but as we got to know the protagonist better it hooked me over time and I wound up enjoying it overall. The story idea isn’t especially new, though it was for its time & I can respect that. I might even be willing to watch this again, if "

"31.01. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Alfred Hitchcock Pretty puzzled by the acclaim this film gets. The plot is really stupid at times - and plots are kind of important in films like these. The ending, for example, makes no sense. At least Hitchcock's visual storytelling is already a pleasure to watch. "
