Review

The Man Who Knew Too Much is a 1934 suspense film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and released by Gaumont British. It was one of the most successful and critically acclaimed films of Hitchcock's British period. The plot concerns a British couple on vacation in Switzerland, who witness the assassination of a spy. Before dying, the spy passes on to them some vital information. In order to maintain their silence, a group kidnaps their daughter. After following a series of leads, the couple discovers that the group intends to assassinate a European ambassador during a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Peter Lorre was unable to speak English at the time of filming (a Jew, he had fled from Nazi Germany only recently), and learned his lines phonetically. The shootout at the end of the film was based on the Sidney Street Siege, a real-life incident which took place in London on 3 January 1911. Hitchcock hired composer Arthur Benjamin to write a piece of music especially for the climactic scene at Royal Albert Hall. The music, known as the Storm Clouds cantata.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
