The Skin GameMovie
This early Hitchcock talkie shows none of the mastery that would subsequently make the director an internationally recognized genius. The story involves two families, one old-fashioned and the other more modern in its ways. As they feud over land rights, the patriarch of the aristocrats
threatens to blackmail the young wife of one of his foes. In the end she attempts suicide. Based on a popular play, the film is little more than a lesser programmer told in the typical stodgy British style. The acting isn't bad, but even so, there's little to hold interest. In his interviews with
Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock himself dismissed the film as a worthless entry in his body of work.
