Directed by : Alfred HITCHCOCK

Year of production : 1939 Length : 100 minutes

Synopsis

Hitchcock's last film before leaving England is a tale of thieves and smugglers set on the rocky coast of Cornwall towards the end of the 18th century. Operating out of the tavern Jamaica Inn, a gang of criminals prey upon the merchant ships they lure close to shore. When the ships crash against the rocks, the ruthless gang of cutthroats seize the cargo and kill all aboard, leaving no witnesses behind. Mary, an orphaned young woman (Maureen O'Hara) arrives at the tavern seeking her aunt who runs the inn with her husband, the leader of the gang. Mary seeks the help of the local Magistrate (Charles Laughton) and an officer of the law operating under cover, but the true mastermind behind the gang has his own plans for her.
