Blackmail (1929) -- (Movie Clip) I'd Better Go
Polish-born Anny Ondra here as straying "Alice," is lip-synching to the off-camera voice of Joan Barry, Alfred Hitchcock directing his first talkie, quite deliberate with the shadow on the face of "the artist" Cyril Ritchard, who goes a bit too far for her, in Blackmail, 1929.>
