Ely Film Society - celebrating and sharing film in all its forms
Our next film, on WEDNESDAY 21st September, is Blackmail, a Hitchcock thriller filmed mostly in sound in 1929, just as the silent era in the UK was ending.
After killing a man in self-defence, a young woman is blackmailed by a witness to the killing. It's not the crime itself but the cover-up that entraps two lovers.
This early Hitchcock intoroduces several features would become Hitchcock "trademarks" including a beautiful blonde in peril and a famous landmark in the finale. Watch out too for his 20 seconds' cameo appearance.
The screening will commence at 7.30pm.
