Description: Creaky, formative Hitchcock concerns the director's No. 1 cinematic preoccupation: guilt and innocence. A juror (Herbert Marshall) who helped convict a young actress (Norah Baring) of murder has second thoughts and sets out to find the real culprit, The story unfolds in basic '30s whodunit fashion. What's important are the glimpses of Hitch's emerging style: the shadow of a noose on a prison wall, a circus suicide.
