Alfred Hitchcock’s 1939 film version of Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn was, by common consent — including Hitchcock’s and du Maurier’s — one of his weakest movies, with the darkness of the novel replaced by something far too larky.

Instead, the opening episode could have brooded for Britain, with everything — ships, characters and plot — slowly emerging from the Cornish murk.
