Twenty-seven years after his death in Los Angeles, his adopted home, director Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980) is widely regarded as not only the ultimate master of suspense, but also as one of the pantheon directors of the 20th century. His command of both cinematic form and content, integrating it into seamless motion picture entertainment, is virtually unrivaled. From the early joys of THE 39 STEPS, THE LADY VANISHES, LIFEBOAT, SABOTEUR and SHADOW OF A DOUBT through mid-period spellbinders ROPE, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, THE WRONG MAN, REAR WINDOW and DIAL M FOR MURDER to later suspense spectaculars THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, NORTH BY NORTHWEST and THE BIRDS, Hitchcock delivers on all fronts, both popular and artistic. Not to mention the incomparable groundbreaking tension of his hair-raising PSYCHO, a movie still sending shock waves more than four decades after its release. Hitchcock has also been responsible for some of the most deliriously romantic, unremittingly dark depictions of amour fou ever committed to celluloid: REBECCA, SUSPICION, NOTORIOUS, VERTIGO, among others. View these titles, and you begin to realize the astonishing versatility and scope of this universally-recognized virtuoso. Join us to once again marvel at just a handful of the master’s classics.
