Golden Age of Hollywood Fall Film Series: “The Films of Alfred Hitchcock”

Thursday, October 13

Alfred Hitchcock is probably the most famous film director whoever lived. For five decades, first in England, then in Hollywood, he made fifty-four films, including classics such as The Thirty-Nine StepsRebeccaNotoriousRear WindowNorth by NorthwestVertigo, and Psycho. Few filmmakers have been as popular, critically celebrated, and as influential, not only as a director but also as a multi-media showman through his tv series, magazines, book anthologies, even extending to board games and record albums. This presentation looks at his achievements as “the master of suspense,” and through dozens of film clips, examines his extraordinary creativity as one of the 20th century’s greatest filmmakers.
