Under Capricorn by Alfred Hitchcock ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1949 and 2003 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the colony of NSW in the 1830s, this is a woman-centred melodrama involving two overlapping triangles (husband/wife/outsider, husband/wife/sinister housekeeper) set against colonial class divisions. The film is light on suspense but complex in emotional interplay involving the long take (which precludes strict point of view) in shifting emotional identification intertwined with the guilt of the main characters. Robin Wood has also identified complex intertextual relationships: links with an early Hitchcock, The Manxman (a class-based triangle), Rebecca (the sinister housekeeper), Vertigo (the role of 'confession' and the reconstruction of the woman's image by the hero), and the stylised psychoanalytical romances Spellbound and Marnie. Along with Notorious and Gaslight it is central to Ingrid Bergman's canon: the tension in her persona between the active 'natural' woman and the vulnerable mentally and/or physically debilitated victim
