"The Fallen Idol" (1948)

One of the best Hitchcock films Hitchcock never directed. The young son of the French ambassador to England thinks he's witnessed a murder. And the culprit is his beloved friend and idol, the household's head butler. Scenes of their sweet friendship alternate with nail-biting suspense as the police try to ensnare the lead suspect with the testimony of the impressionable kid. Great storytelling and fine subtle performance by Ralph Richardson as the servant make this a must-see.
