The Manxman (1929) with live accompaniment by Stephen Horne

Screening as part of our short HippFest season of films celebrating the rich and immersive world of silent film with live music: Taste of Silents 2023.
Hitchcock's last silent film, and one of his very best!

In a small fishing community (with beautiful Cornish locations standing in for the story's Isle of Man setting), two boyhood friends are inseparable as youths but take different paths in adulthood. When they both fall in love with Kate, the daughter of a puritanical Methodist, they are forced to deal with their own moral codes and with the strict Manx society in which they live. This tempestuous melodrama is bursting with bold, Hitchcockian bravado and shines even brighter thanks to the complex, sensual performance of Anny Ondra, as Kate.

This evening's screening will be accompanied live by acclaimed composer and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne (piano, flute, accordion), who has a deep affinity with this title having been commissioned to write the score for the BFI London Film Festival Gala screening in 2012.
Dir: Alfred Hitchcock / UK / 1929 / 1h 40m
With: Carl Brisson, Malcolm Keen, Randle Ayrton, Anny Ondra
