By the time Alfred Hitchcock made the films represented in this series, he was an experienced and respected director who had directed 20 features, some of them quite successful. But it was this run of movies that made him a household name and a sought-after property in Hollywood, where his legend, bank account, and waistline all grew to legendary proportions. These are magnificent entertainments. As the master himself told Francois Truffaut, “Some films are slices of life, mine are slices of cake.”
Join us April 4th at 6 PM for a pre-party to kick off our Hitchcock Before Hollywood series. Enjoy complimentary tea provided by The Steeping Room, atmosphere by The Marvelous Vintage Tea Party, music from the era spun by Dennis Campa (of KOOP Radio’s Adventures in Sound), and a Hitchcock-inspired photo booth.
