In this dark period drama, a young woman discovers her uncles head a gang of ship-wreckers and murderers under the secret patronage of the local squire, wickedly played by Charles Laughton. (Note: this is the last film Hitchcock directed before leaving the U.K.) The cast incudes Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Hara, and Robert Newton.
