BLACKMAIL ('29) Aust daybill

Appears in Crime Movie Posters

BOOK SOLD OUT
The image at right appears in the book we published as shown above. While we once owned this item, we did not auction it through eMoviePoster.com (which is why no price or date is listed) nor do we have it available for purchase.

Blackmail, the 1929 Alfred Hitchcock English murder thriller ("The Powerful Talking Picture"; "A Romance of Scotland Yard"; based on the play by Charles Bennett; about a woman who kills a man in self defense, but another man who witnessed the murder blackmails her) starring Anny Ondra (she was married to director Carl Lamac, and was a major star in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s; she continued working with her husband after they were divorced, and in 1933, she married boxer Max Schmeling, and they appeared in "Knockout" together, and remained married for over 50 years, until her passing in 1987), John Longden, Cyril Ritchard, Sara Allgood, and Charles Paton. Note that this was originally intended to be a silent movie, but after the massive success of The Jazz Singer, it was decided that parts of this would be given sound. Apparently, Hitchcock thought this ridiculous and had the entire movie filmed in sound, making it England's first all-talking movie. Also, star Anny Ondra had a very thick accent, so Hitchcock hired another actress to speak her lines as Ondra mouthed the words, so her part was in effect "dubbed", even though it was not in the modern sense, where a different voice is added post production (that technology did not exist in 1929).
