SUSPENSE ACCOUNT: THE FILMS OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK

May 4 & 26 – June 8, 2011, at the Egyptian Theatre

“Give them pleasure - the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.” - Hitchcock.

Widely regarded as the ultimate master of suspense, director Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980) gave his delightfully chilling obsessions an indelible, meticulously controlled yet wildly creative celluloid form for movie audiences to enjoy and gleefully fear. He directed more than 50 films over the course of six decades, and his command of both cinematic form and content, integrated into seamless motion picture entertainment, is virtually unrivaled. Join us for a terrifically varied (and, of course, thrillingly suspenseful) program including such favorites from Hitchcock’s hugely successful period of Technicolor spectaculars as NORTH BY NORTHWEST, REAR WINDOW, VERTIGO, THE BIRDS, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH and TO CATCH A THIEF. In addition, we are screening the early joys of THE 39 STEPS and THE LADY VANISHES, taut mid-period suspense thrillers such as NOTORIOUS, SHADOW OF A DOUBT, SUSPICION, REBECCA, SPELLBOUND and SABOTEUR, and the bloody-brilliant slasher classic PSYCHO.

Also included in the program is a tribute to actor Farley Granger (1925 – 2011) with a double feature of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and ROPE.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Beth Hanna.
