An Alfred Hitchcock Retrospective
During a career spanning half a century, Alfred Hitchcock, the "Master of Suspense," directed numerous films that have become an indelible part of cinema, first in his native Britain and later in Hollywood. Using short clips from his films as well as excerpts from the many interviews “Hitch” gave throughout his career, we will have an opportunity to examine:
- Memorable scenes from films such as "Rear Window," " Vertigo," "Notorious," and “Spellbound.”
- How Hitchcock used various camera and editing techniques to manipulate the audience’s emotions and character identification.
- How Hitchcock’s association with graphic artist Saul Bass and composer Bernard Herrmann enabled him to further enhance his films.
