  • The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934)

    This is a review of Blackhawk Films 16mm release of Alfred Hitchcock's 1934 The Man Who Knew Too Much. A Black & White print with good contrast and optical sound mounted on two 1600' reels. The film is 75 minutes long and stars Lesley Banks, Edna Best, and Peter Lorre. This is a fast paced and suspenseful story of espionage, murder and kidnapping, set in backdrops from Switzerland to London. Seeing Leslie Banks in the role of a loving father is a stark contrast to the evil Count Zaroff he portrayed a few years earlier in The Most Dangerous Game, and shows the range of his acting skills. ​ Here are some screenshots from this print. A very enjoyable early Hitchcock film that I personally prefer to his own later 1956 color remake with the same title.

    I can’t see your screenshots, Joe.
    I have this print too though and it’s a nice print.
    I have a question for you. My print does not have the usual Blackhawk logo at the beginning. It comes straight in on the travel brochures. Is yours the same?

ID:	28971 Sorry for the late reply Mick. Anyway, mine begins with the British censorship approval then to the travelogues. The Blackhawk logo is at the end of the print. I'm downloading the screenshots again. I don't know what happened to them the first time?
