Example text

At first she is reluctant to help him, but at Tom’s Hat, a pull-up for lorry drivers, she finds out that Robert’s coat was really stolen and given to a tramp called Old Will. She then believes Robert. After finding the tramp, a car chase ensues, and their car enters a mine and falls into the mine shaft. Robert and Will jump from the car and Robert saves Erica from death. The only thing in the coat not belonging to Robert is a matchbook from The Grand Hotel. They all go there (Will the tramp dresses as a gentleman to get in because he’s the only one who can recognise the man who gave 58 Hitchcock 6/7/04 1:58 pm Page 59 HITCHCOCK him the coat), and cannot find the man with the twitching eyes.

When Alice is in the artist’s garret, she sees a policeman walk by in the street, so she thinks she’s safe but, as she’s being attacked, the policeman walks by and can do nothing to help her. When she enters the artist’s room,Alice laughs at the funny clown painting laughing and pointing at her, but after the murder, the clown is laughing at her and later, when her confession is not heard, the picture is there again, laughing at her.

There are a couple of fights, gunplay, and the girl and detective get tied up. Eventually, they all end up on a train or chasing the train in a bus. It’s totally ludicrous, but eminently watchable. A man, his back to us, picks up the hat, looks up, sees a light flickering in the dark house, walks up to the door, tries it, it opens, walks in, walks up to the stairs and quickly looks up. Shadows appear and move along the walls: a giant hand, a web, a shadow hand grabbing a doorknob. Several times, the swish of the wind is accompanied by a shot of a window, an extremely fast pan, as if the camera were following the wind, to a candle being extinguished by the gust.
