Downhill affiche

After the critical and commercial success of The Lodger (1926), Gainsborough Pictures were keen to reunite director Alfred Hitchcock and star Ivor Novello. A convenient vehicle suggested itself in the stage play “Down Hill”, written by Novello with Constance Collier, under the combined alias David L”Estrange.
