Format: DVD
In film school I was torn between which version of exciting story is better. It may just be this one, with Hitchcock in fine form weaving dry British humor into a story of heart-pounding suspense; young girl is kidnapped to prevent her parents from revealing what they've learned about assassination plot. The film opens as Bob and Jill Lawrence are on a winter sports holiday with their teenage daughter Betty. When their friend Louis Bernard is shot whilst dancing with Jill, he tells Bob of an assassination about to take place in London. Fearing that their plot will be revealed, the assassins kidnap Betty in order to keep the Lawrence's quiet. Bob and Jill return to London and take matters into their own hands. Jill and Bob Lawrence are on a winter holiday with their daughter, Betty. While he is dancing with Jill, the secret agent Louis Bernard is shot to death. With his last words he tells Jill about an assassination planned by some terrorists, about to take place in London. Fearing their plan would be revealed, the spies kidnap Betty and carry her off to London with them. Bob and Jill come back to London too, searching for their daughter. Still an intact suspense plot by today's standards, the film exceeded the standards set by Hitchcock's Golden age work in an era when the cinematic suspense lexicon was still maturing. Performances are gritty and wholesome, when easily identifiable transplanted Americans are caught in a game of Cat and Mouse. Equally so, Sabotage is a key film in dark suspense. Not to be confused with Saboteur, a much more successful film, this is possibly one of Hitch's biggest downers. The film was a critical and financial failure in light of his previous works. In wartime Europe, Mr. Verloc, a cinema owner, is part of a gang of saboteurs in London.Read more ›

Have viewed Murder and Blackmail, and both are probably the same old transfers mentioned in other reviews

This is a repacked master of the macabre double set.

Sound on blackmail was actually pretty good, considering its age.

So, it would be nice for someone to run them through a descratching program..............

This Laserlight version of this very good film is terrible with a very poor picture and sound.I would recommend buying the Carlton(the silver collection)version of "The Man Who Knew Too Much"(1934)from Amazon UK.This British DVD version(region 2) has a very good picture and sound and this Hitchcock fan was very happy to buy it.
