Stage Fright (23-Feb-1950)

Director: Alfred Hitchcock

Writers: Whitfield Cook; Alma Reville

From novel: Man Running by Selwyn Jepson

Music Composed by: Leighton Lucas

Keywords: Thriller

Set in the London theatre community, a drama student takes great efforts to prove a friend innocent of murder. A lesser Hitchcock, but still far superior to most productions in this genre. Often criticized because Hitchcock breaks a long-accepted rule of cinema, which cannot be named or it would spoil things. Received an Edgar nomination for Best Motion Picture.
