Alfred Hitchcock

The Skin Game

85' - 1931 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Alfred Hitchcock With: Edmund Gwenn, Jill Esmond, C.V. France, Helen Haye
Derived from John Galsworthy's play, The Skin Game contrasts the old order of the decent conservative Hillcrist with the irruption of the new man Hornblow, a self-made industrialist who ushers in modernity with its cruelty and dynamism. Hillcrist's insubstantial purity is lost, and the old order dies by virtue of the fact of there being a conflict. Both sides are chastened, each having been cruel to the other, while the young couple suggest a possible future unity. (National Film Theatre)
