The Ring ★★★

Carl Brisson, a rising newcomer to boxing, has to compete with heavyweight champion Ian Hunter in and out of the ring. Brisson will soon fight Hunter for the championship. Meanwhile, Brisson’s new wife, Lillian Hall-Davis, is responding favorably to Hunter’s advances.

The fourth film directed by Alfred Hitchcock is an inexpensively made silent. The story develops slowly and reaches the expected climax of the wife choosing her husband who wins the big fight. Mainly interesting for fans of Hitchcock who want to study his development as a filmmaker.
