Directed by Alfred Hitchcock




108 minutes


A love triangle melodrama set in the world of boxing, The Ring was Alfred Hitchcock’s only original screenplay. Considered one of his finest silents, it is exhilaratingly bold filmmaking.

The story follows boxer Bob Corby, who hires Jack Sander as a sparring partner and soon becomes smitten with Mabel, Jack’s beautiful wife. The conflict between the two men gives rise to an inventive series of expressionist flourishes evoking the characters’ states of mind.
