The Manxman

0 Love It

A distinctly un-Hitchcockian melodrama (his last real silent, since Blackmail came next), based on a best-selling novel by Hall Caine written in the 1890s. Its story is accordingly old-hat (a love triangle that reaches crisis when the woman's fisherman husband - wrongly believed dead - returns to find her pregnant with his best friend's child); but Hitch makes the most of his locations (although the film is set on the Isle of Man, it was shot in Cornwall), while the frequent use of shots taken through windows anticipates the interest in voyeurism in his later work.
