Downhill

A film by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Ivor Novello, Ben Webster, Norman McKinnel

The darkest of Hitchcock’s early films, Downhill follows the fall from grace of a public schoolboy who is expelled for getting a girl pregnant and subsequently disowned by his father. An early example not only of Hitchcock’s interest in guilt and its transference, but of his highly ambivalent attitude to family life, this is a deceptively rich and often elegant work. A star turn from Ivor Novello, too.
