JAMAICA INN (1939)

dir. Alfred Hitchcock. Hitchcock’s last British film before leaving for the U.S.A. Mostly dull, humorless film about some Cornwall based modern day pirates. There are some pretty incredible special effects showing ships being wrecked. One the leads, Charles Laughton later went on to direct one film in this career, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955), which definitely has some Hitchcock influenced moments, I should have re-watched that film.
