"The British cinema's one undisputed romantic leading man in the 1930s was Robert Donat," wrote Jeffrey Richards in his book The Age of the Dream Palace.[4] "The image he projected was that of the romantic idealist, often with a dash of the gentleman adventurer."[5]

The header photo just blows me away. Obviously a photo-still from Hitchcock's with Robert Donat in the foreground hiding from those who hunt him, to me it shows how important the time Hitch spent in Germany studying German Expressionism was. It's got that movement written all over it. The shadows, the body shapes, the stark background lighting ... it's all there.
