The Manxman

A film by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Carl Brisson, Malcolm Keen, Anny Ondra

‘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
