    Description

    The Woman Alone (Gaumont, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41") Also Known As "Sabotage."
    Filmed in London, Alfred Hitchcock's spy thriller is based on the Joseph Conrad novel "The Secret Agent." As the director had just recently released another film with that title, it was released in Great Britain as Sabotage and for the U.S. release was called The Woman Alone. Sylvia Sidney, in her only film for Hitchcock, plays Mrs. Verloc, who suspects her husband Karl (Oskar Homolka) of being the mastermind behind recent bombings in the city. She is fearful to try to stop him until her younger brother is killed as he unknowingly carries one of the bombs through the city - one of Hitchcock's most suspenseful scenes. The director changed Conrad's novel somewhat to play on the audiences of the time's fear of foreign spies in London. John Loder co-stars as the undercover Scotland Yard Sergeant Ted Spencer. This unique and lovely image of Sidney and the menacing shadow of Homolka rarely comes available, especially in such remarkable condition. The sheet had small edge chips in the left and right borders, minor fold wear with small chips, and a few surface abrasions in the title, from a removed snipe. These issues have been addressed by professional and well-done restoration, leaving this gem in excellent shape. Fine+ on Linen.
