Hitchcock’s Blackmail – Silent and Sound

June 18th, 2013

See the silent and the sound versions of Alfred Hitchcock’s Blackmail (1929) at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night. Commonly known as the first British “talkie,” Hitchcock also shot a silent version for theaters not yet equipped for sound. Both versions will be screened, the silent accompanied by Michael Mortilla.
