The man who knew too much by Alfred Hitchcock( visu )
167 editions published between 1934 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,596 libraries worldwide
"An ordinary British couple vacationing in Switzerland suddenly find themselves embroiled in a case of international intrigue when their daughter is kidnapped by spies plotting a political assassination. This fleet and gripping early thriller from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was the first film the director made after signing to the Gaumont-British Picture Corporation. Besides affirming Hitchcock's genius, it gave the brilliant Peter Lorre his first English-speaking role, as slithery villain. With its tension and gallows humor, it's pure Hitchcock, and it set the tone for such films as The 39 steps and The Lady Vanishes." -- Back of container
