Plot: A gripping adaptation of the Daphne Du Maurier novel, JAMAICA INN is the story of a teenage orphaned girl who goes to live with relatives on the Cornish Moors and finds herself involved in a violent smuggling scheme. The Cornish seacoast and the moors is the background for Charles Laughton, a villainous squire who leads a pack of smugglers falsely luring boats to the area. The boats crash on the rocks, killing the passengers and allowing the smugglers to loot the cargo. An undercover investigator arrives from Lloyds of London to gather information on the truth behind the multiple shipwrecks, and O’Hara finds herself having to take a stance and help him from being hung by the evil pirates.
