You can read Joseph Conrad's novel, The Secret Agent, online or listen to it on audible.

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.
