On Friday, October 15th, 2021 from 2-3:30pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for this fun and informative lecture about the films of Alfred Hitchcock.
Alfred Hitchcock is probably the most famous film director 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 looks at his achievements as “the master of suspense,” and through dozens of film clips, examines some of his extraordinary techniques as a director.
Brian Rose is a professor emeritus at Fordham University. He’s written several books on television history and cultural programming, and conducted more than a hundred Q&A’s with leading directors, actors, and writers for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.
