35mm print — sound version

“A woman murders her would-be rapist, setting up a delicate moral problem for her fiance, a Scotland Yard inspector… Given the technical limitations (Hitchcock’s star, Anny Ondra, couldn’t speak English, and had to lip-synch with a British actress standing off frame), the aggressive experimentation with the sound track is remarkably effective… it shouldn’t be missed.” – Dave Kehr
