Movie Review: Alfred Hitchcock's Murder (1930)
In this film, a murder has been committed. A woman is a shoe-in for "the smoking gun". By all accounts, she did it.
The film takes us through the discovery of the murder, the police investigation, the trial, and spends some time in the jury room. Later a juror is not comfortable with his decision and sets out to find the truth.
Dated as to gender roles, and melodramatic in the way of its era, it is still quite an interesting film. We streamed it live from Netflix. The sound is challenging at times and I missed quite a bit of dialogue. Still a worthy watch.
Black and white and not rated. Most kids would be bored.
I was not able to find any trailers for the film. You CAN watch the entire thing on YouTube so I'll put that link here, or watch below if you wish.
