These movies are some of Hitchcock's lesser known treasures. I liked all of them. Sometimes you just want to put on a movie thats good ol' black and white and watch the master of suspense work his magic. Very good compliation.

"Jamaica Inn - When her parents die, Mary is sent to Cornwall, England to live with her Aunt Patience and Uncle Joss. Uncle Joss is the owner and proprietor of the Jamaica Inn, a seemingly normal business. However, Mary soon discovers that all is not what it seems: her uncle is a leader of a gang of pirates who lure ships to their doom on a rocky coast. When Mary discovers the truth, though, she begins to fear for her life. This early classic from the master of suspense is adapted from a novel by Daphne Du Maurier and features screen legend Charles Laughton. The film was originally released in 1939.
Sabotage - Mr. Verloc leads an unassuming life as the manager of a small cinema. At least, thats what his wife and brother-in-law think. What they don't know is that Mr. Verloc is actually part of a gang of saboteurs. When Scotland Yard assigns a detective to work next door to the cinema, Mr. Verloc's life takes a dramatic turn in this tense, edge-of-your-seat thriller. The film was originally released in 1936.
The 39 Steps - In the London music hall, Canadian tourists Richard Hannay is enjoying a production of "Mr. Memory." Just before it ends, however, there is a disturbance in the hall and Richard's life becomes intertwined with that of Annabella Smith, a woman on the run from a spy ring. He agrees to protect her, but later that night, she is murdered. Fearing he will be accused of the crime, Richard goes on the run to bring down the spy ring and prove his innocence. Along with 1934's The Man Who Knew Too Much, this is the film that made Hitchcock a household name. The film was originally released in 1935.
Easy Virtue - Larita Filton has just had her life turned upside down, a scandalous divorce case and subsequent suicide have left her the scourge of the community. She escapes to France where she meets John Whittaker and they fall in love. When John's family finds out her secret, though, Larita may be in for more than she'd ever bargained for." The film was originally released in 1928.
