Courtesy of YouTube, the other 5 of the 9 remaining Hitchcock-directed silent films.

  • Downhill (1927)
  • The Farmer's Wife (1928)
  • Easy Virtue (1928)
  • Champagne (1928)
  • The Manxman (1929)

As TOM has mentioned, The Lodger, The Ring and The Pleasure Garden (his first directorial credit) are among the most interesting, along with The Manxman and Blackmail  (the first British "talkie" but also released as a silent version).

The journey continues.

I highly recommend this book. Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light

I know of no better book about a director in general and about Hitchcock in particular (of whom dozens of books have been written about and his films.) And, because it's chronological it's a great companion for those doing the Hitchcock film "ride."
