IA #93: Sabotage (1936)

 I Love Trouble (1948) on IMDb

There’s no shortage of Alfred Hitchcock movies in the Internet Archive’s Feature Films collection, nor in the IA Top 100. In Sabotage, Sylvia Sidney stars as the unwitting accomplice to her husband, who meets with his gang of foreign saboteurs in his cinema in London. A Scotland Yard detective goes undercover in a shop next door.

It’s tough to spot Hitchcock’s cameo in this one. It comes early, when he looks up just after the lights come up in front of the theater. The cartoon excerpt in the cinema near the end of the movie was from Who Killed Cock Robin?, a Silly Symphony by Walt Disney Studios.
