Among his wide range of skills, Hitchcock had an ability to spot raw talent. This was precisely the case with Marueen O'Hara, who plays an orphaned girl living on the rugged coast in Ireland. After several vessels smash on the deadly rocks, she begins to suspect it's more than accidental. Also stars Charles Laughton and Leslie Banks.
To have characters caught up in a web of confusion and chaos beyond their control was one of Hitchcock's frequent techniques. Such is the case of an actress caught standing over the corpse of a fellow actress. With no memory of the murder or herself, only one person believes she is innocent. Stars Herbert Marshall and Nora Baring.
