Number 17 is a 1932 parody thriller about a jewel heist gone wrong. Directed and co-written by Alfred Hitchcock, the movie begins when a hobo named Ben Tramp (Leon Lion) happens to come upon an old London house and curiously goes in only to discover a woman's body lying lifeless inside. A detective, Mr. Fordyce (John Stuart), soon arrives at the house and the two men identify the unconscious woman as Rose Ackroyd (Ann Casson). Beside Ackroyd's body the two men notice a telegram that seems to warn the woman that a group of thieves were set to stop by her house intent on stealing her jewels later on that night. At midnight, a trio of thieves posing as house hunters do indeed stop by looking for her valuables, only to be surprised by the detective's presence. Taking a serious 180 degree turn, the thieves then hilariously turn into concerned citizens as they attempt to convince Fordyce that they are intent on catching the thieves mentioned in the note.moreless
