Jamaica Inn

11 years ago at Nov 30 5:56
Charles Laughton was a co-producer as well, and he interfered greatly with Hitchcock's direction.

Laughton was originally cast as the uncle, but he cast himself in the role of villain, which was originally to be a hypocritical preacher, but was rewritten as a squire because unsympathetic portrayals of the clergy were forbidden by the Production Code in Hollywood.[3]

A good movie

Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check it out. After watching many (rather disappointing ) silent features directed by Hitchcock, it was quite nice to see a good old thriller directed by the great master of the genre. I have to admit it, it wasn’t one of his best work and even though it was a box-office suc... read more

For all the flourishes that demonstrate Alfred Hitchcock was at least somewhat engaged with material, Jamaica Inn still evinces the sight of the controlling director being overrun by his star with his mind largely elsewhere. Coming right before his transatlantic crossing to work with a minor American studio, David O. Selznick had yet to produce Gone with the Wind, Jamaica Inn has less to do with H... read more

Description: Cornwall, early 19th century. "Queer things" go on at a place called Jamaica Inn. When Mary Yellen, a strong-willed young Irish woman, tells a coachman to drop her off there, he rudely speeds past the place and then stops outside the mansion of Sir Humphrey. She gets out to complain, but the coachman throws her trunk to the ground and drives off. Soon, the seemingly kind Sir Humphrey is escorting the recently orphaned Mary to the mysterious place, where she has come to live with her Aunt Patience. It isn't long before Mary learns that her aunt's husband, Joss, leads a band of cutthroats who cause shipwrecks for profit. ... (more)

“For all the flourishes that demonstrate Alfred Hitchcock was at least somewhat engaged with material, Jamaica Inn still evinces the sight of the controlling director being overrun by his star with his mind largely elsewhere. Coming right before his transatlantic crossing to work with a minor American studio, David O. Selznick had yet to produce Gone with the Wind, Jamaica Inn has less to do with Hitchcock’s typical suspense and a lot more to do with melodrama. He had already managed to make The Lady Vanishes, The 39 Steps, and the Peter Lorre version of The Man Who Knew Too Much, each technically daring and filled with glorious bits of suspense, comedy, and adventure, so Jamaica Inn’s routine flatlining is something of a surprise.   Then again, this is really the Charles Laughton sh” read more
