Alfred Hitchcock directed A Story of the London Fog in 1926. He was a 27-year-old youth who had completed his third silent film as a director, still in his native Great Britain, where he would make about a further 15 films throughout the 1930s, before debuting in Hollywood, in 1940, with Rebecca, his first great worldwide success. Notwithstanding, this movie had been preceded by films that had been received very well internationally, such as The 39 Steps (1935) and The Lady Vanishes (1938), which, as a whole, more than set the standards for his many ensuing years of fame: crime, suspense, humour, eroticism, blame and innocence…

François Truffaut, in his famous and indispensable book of interviews with the English master film maker, considers A Story of the London Fog to be Hitchcock’s first important film –based on a novel that the director admired in its theatrical version– and that it to be very visually creative and, above all, hold the keys to many of his future films, luring the audience into a game about the true personality of a suspected lady killer. It had a huge commercial impact and consolidated the genius’s unstoppable and rising career.
