VIRTUAL- The Films of Alfred Hitchcock
Alfred Hitchcock is probably the most famous filmdirector who ever lived. For five decades, first in England, then in Hollywood, he made fifty-four films,including classics such as The Thirty-Nine Steps,Rebecca, Notorious, Rear Window, North by Northwest, Vertigo, and Psycho. Few filmmakers have been as popular, critically celebrated, and as influential.
This presentation via Zoom looks at his achievements as “the master of suspense,” and through dozens of film clips, examines some of his extraordinary techniques as a director.
