Hitchcock: Before and AFter Hollywood.

The cinematography in “Sabotage” is delicious.  Because of this, look around before deciding which online version to watch.  Some of the versions are blurry and you won’t fully appreciate the astounding black-and-white art work of Bernard Knowles’ work.
 
Knowles (1900-1975) was a British director, producer, cinematographer and screenwriter.  He, like Hitchcock, was a part of the very earliest cinema in Britain.  Knowles started his career as a newspaper photographer and during the 1920s worked as a photographer for the Detroit News.
 
After returning to England in the 1922, he was hired by Gainsborough Pictures as an assistant cameraman.  He was soon the Director of Photography. 
 
Films of Knowles’ you might remember include Gaslight (1940), The Hounds of the Baskervilles (1931).
 
He worked with Hitchcock on “The 39 Steps (1935), “Secret Agent” (1936), “Sabotage (1936), Young and Innocent (1937) and Jamaica Inn (1939). 
 
Knowles also was the director of “Magical Mystery Tour” (1967).
