Alfred Hitchcock's Bon Voyage & Aventure Malgache (DVD)
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Two short, absorbing dramas of wartime espionage and murder, together at last! Legendary master of suspense and intrigue Alfred Hitchcock directed these forgotten classics in 1944 to aid the war effort, but when government officials saw his work, they labeled them "inflammatory" and shelved them from release.
Bon Voyage sees a Scottish RAF gunner, escaped from a German prison camp, being interrogated by a French intelligence officer. As the gunner explains how he was helped and guided by a Polish escapee, Hitchcock brings the audience to their journey through wartorn France, passed off hand-to-hand by ambivalent strangers through a series of sinister rendezvous.
Meanwhile, Aventure Malgache is told from the perspective of an actor, tantilizing his castmates backstage with a story from another continent. As the camera once more changes perspectives, Hitchcock immerses the audience among the French underground resistance fighting for Madagascar, threatened by the loose-lipped girlfriend of the movement's undaunting leader.
