We continue our Alfred Hitchcock silent strand with The Ring, Hitchcock's one and only original screenplay, his first feature at British International Pictures, and one his finest silent films.

When boxer Bob Corby hires Jack Sander to be his sparring partner, he has no idea that he will become smitten with Mabel, Jack’s beautiful wife.

A love triangle emerges in which the bouts in the ring become more than gamely sparring, leading up to the championship fight (famously set in the Albert Hall) between the two men for the love of Mabel.

Ian Hunter, Carl Brisson and the luminous Lilian Hall-Davis are outstanding, and the contemporary magazine Bioscope declared: 'this is the most magnificent British film ever made.'

UK 1927 Dir. Alfred Hitchcock 108 min.
