Hull Independent Cinema and Yorkshire Silent Film Festival present:
BLACKMAIL with live score
Alfred Hitchcock | 1929 | UK | Cert PG | 85 mins | Silent: English title cards
After killing a man in self-defence, a young woman is blackmailed by a witness to the event. Alfred Hitchcock’s sinister, suspenseful tale of crime and romance is one of the last British silent films to be made. Through its mixture of location filming and a cast of believable working-class characters, BLACKMAIL is a rich evocation of London life in the late 1920s with scenes in the London Underground, Whitehall, the Lyon’s Tea House at Piccadilly Circus, and a climactic chase in and atop the British Museum.
Live improvised score by Jonny Best (piano) and James Hedgecock (percussion).
BLACKMAIL is rated PG. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
