Final Hitchcock double feature this Friday

This Friday October 18 we hold the last in our series of early Alfred Hitchcock double features, starting at 7pm.

Leading off will be Young and Innocent, featuring Nova Pilbeam (who you may remember as the kidnapped daughter in The Man Who Knew Too Much) and Derrick De Marney. This film is particularly notable for two long crane shots, into closeup and later back out, in the climactic ballroom scene.

Topping off our series, we have a true classic – The Lady Vanishes, starring Margaret Lockwood, Michael Redgrave, and of course Dame May Whitty as the vanishing lady. Considered by many to be the best of Hitchcock’s early films, or even the best overall, it is both exciting and humorous, while providing a case study in attention to detail in filmmaking. This should start shortly after 8:30pm.

We hope to see you Friday night – remember, admission is free (of course, donations are encouraged) and concessions are cheap!
