Review [Skin] Although Hitchcock once admitted he considered this the low point of his career, "The Skin Game" has a lot going for it. Perhaps Hitchcock was more frustrated by his lack of control than by his lack of inspiration..."The Skin Game" is notable for two camera techniques. The first is in the hyper-competitive auction scene. Whereas in the stultifying "Juno and the Paycock" Hitchcock's camera remained static, here it jumps around, pans, zooms, and makes the scene sparkle with electricity. The second technique is one that Hitchcock would use in nearly every film that followed. After it has been revealed that Hornblower's daughter-in-law was once a courtesan, the camera pulls back to a long shot of her standing alone, isolated from the rest of the world by emotion and physical space. It's a method that Orson Welles would exploit to the hilt in "Citizen Kane."

Review [Murder] Like Hitchcock's debut, The Pleasure Garden (1925), and the later Stage Fright (US, 1950), Murder!'s action took place in a theatrical setting. Hitchcock was an enthusiastic theatre-goer, and one of Murder!'s most entertaining scenes takes place during the performance of a farce, when two detectives become increasingly confused as members of the cast come and go, dropping in and out of character...The film contains a number of innovations, including what some believe to be the first use of a voice-over to denote an internal monologue. This in an unusual scene in which the theatre star turned detective, Sir John, ponders the case while shaving and listening to the wireless; Hitchcock claimed that for the radio music he used a live orchestra on set, rather than a recording.
