Double Feature!

DOWNHILL features a newly commissioned, traditional piano score by John Sweeney.


1927, British Film Institute, 105 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Popular composer and performer Ivor Novello cowrote the play upon which this drama was based, and he stars as Roddy Berwick, a top rugby player at a tony English boarding school. Roddy takes the blame for his best friend when a local girl both had dated gets pregnant, and his life goes downhill from there. Told with minimal intertitles, this silent benefits enormously from Hitchock’s visual panache.

1940, Walt Disney Pictures, 130 min, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Director Alfred Hitchcock’s Gothic romance asks the question: Did guilt-ridden, rich widower Laurence Olivier do away with his notorious wife Rebecca or not? And what secret does sinister, manipulating housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson) hold? As the widower’s second wife, a young Joan Fontaine attempts to unravel the mystery.
