Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Before he became known as the Master of Suspense in Hollywood, Alfred Hitchcock had already established himself as a precociously talented filmmaker in England. Hitchcock: British International Pictures Collection brings together five features he directed for the production company that first displayed his talents. Four of them are visually dynamic silent films (restored by the BFI): atmospheric boxing drama The Ring, sprightly comedies The Farmer’s Wife and Champagne, and a love triangle set on the Isle of Man, The Manxman. Also included is the 1931 sound feature The Skin Game, a rousing melodrama about feuding families. These features display Hitchcock’s command of visual language long before his Hollywood sojourn, proving he was a master from the beginning.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

New scores by Meg Morley (The Ring), Jon Mirsalis (The Farmer’s Wife), Ben Model (Champagne), and Andrew Earle Simpson (The Manxman)

Hitchcock/Truffaut: Icon interviews Icon (Archival Audio)

Audio commentary on The Ring by film critic Nick Pinkerton

Audio commentaries on Champagne and The Manxman by film historian Farran Smith Nehme

*The Ring, The Farmer’s Wife, Champagne, and The Manxman were restored by the BFI National Archive in association with STUDIOCANAL
