Murder

Time Out says

Perhaps the most provocative of all early British Hitchcocks, a whodunit (adapted from the novel and play by Clemence Dane) that transcends the limitations of its mystery plot by focusing on theatrical mediations of reality (courtesy of Hamlet). A girl silently accepts her prosecution for murder; the lone juror who believes in her innocence starts an investigation of his own; and winds up confronting the first negative gay stereotype in popular cinema.
