"The Ring" is a 1927 British, silent, black and white film directed and written by Alfred Hitchcock. The story focused on a love triangle between two men and a woman. It is the only film in his career for which Hitchcock took or was given a full writing credit. The film, while widely considered a minor work, features photography tricks Hitchcock would use again years later in films like "The Man Who Knew Too Much", most notably during the climactic boxing sequences.

After being thought in the public domain for decades, the film's rights were obtained by French media company Canal+ in 2005. A restored and remastered print of the film was released on DVD by Lionsgate Home Entertainment in 2007.
