Rating: 6/10 -- Jamaica Inn, while no classic, seems undeserving of its reputation as a failure. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- It could have come across as strictly a work-for-hire gig, but it displays enough Hitchcockery to show he wasn't as disengaged from the material as he would later claim he was. Full Review

By common consent, one of Alfred Hitchcock's poorest and least personal works, though it has some compensations. Full Review

Having set his own standards, Alfred Hitchcock must be judged by them; and, by them, his Jamaica Inn is merely journeyman melodrama. Full Review

Product Description:

Set in 19th-century Cornwall, this tale of a young woman who visits her aunt, only to discover she's residing in a haven for throat-slashing pirates, is one of Hitchcock's lesser-known films. A period melodrama, the film features an excellent Maureen O'Hara in one of her earlier roles. JAMAICA INN is based on Daphne Du Maurier's famous novel of the same name.

Plot Synopsis:

A gripping adaptation of the Daphne Du Maurier novel, JAMAICA INN is the story of a teenage orphaned girl who goes to live with relatives on the Cornish Moors and finds herself involved in a violent smuggling scheme. The Cornish seacoast and the moors is the background for Charles Laughton, a villainous squire who leads a pack of smugglers falsely luring boats to the area. The boats crash on the rocks, killing the passengers and allowing the smugglers to loot the cargo. An undercover investigator arrives from Lloyds of London to gather information on the truth behind the multiple shipwrecks, and O'Hara finds herself having to take a stance and help him from being hung by the evil pirates.
