The story in MURDER! now seems standard: a stage actress is seemingly wrongly accused of murder, and a veteran actor (Herbert Marshall in his first sound film) tries to prove her innocence.Read more ›
The film is a bit slow-paced and dialogue driven, and—lacking English subtitles—requires close attention to follow the story. That said, it has several of Hitchcock’s touches, including a play within a play, and a cross-dressing villain (Esme Percy) who performs both as a clown and as a trapeze artist. In one of the most memorable and moving scenes, Percy’s piquant acting skill manages to elicit our sympathy. The climatic scene takes place under the big tent with the villain performing on the trapeze. If you’re into Hitchcock, as I am, this is a must have. Five stars.
The print of this 85-year-old film wasn't the best (I'll be on the lookout for a better one), but for $8.50 was good enough to give me a sense of the film. Things really kicked into high gear when Sir John began investigating ... the final scene at the circus is classic Hitch.
Note the 4-star rating is for the movie overall; the quality of the print would drop this to 2.5 or 3 stars.
