The Man Who Knew Too Much is a suspenseful thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock that follows a vacationing British couple, Bob and Jill Lawrence (Leslie Banks and Edna Best), whose recent acquaintance with a foreign Louis Bernard (Pierre Fresnay) pulls them into a world of spies, assassinations, and crime. Louis had been staying in their Swiss hotel and while he danced with Jill during a party, he is assassinated and revealed a French spy. Just before he died, he tells the Lawrences the secret information that needed to be passed on to the British government. Unfortunately, things are never quite easy as a quite charismatic but manipulative assassin Abbott (Peter Lorre) kidnaps the Lawrence's daughter Betty (Nova Pilbeam). Not sure of what to do to save their daughter, Bob and Jill go deep into the underbelly to figure out where the assassins would strike next and how to get their daughter back. The Man Who Knew Too Much is considered one of Hitchcock's most successful and critically acclaimed British films and was later remade by the director almost two decades later. It is the only film to ever be remade by Hitchcock.
