EASY VIRTUE
1927, British Film Institute, 69 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

This adaptation of Noel Coward’s play skewers high-society hypocrisy with a couple of familiar faces from the director’s DOWNHILL, Isabel Jeans and Robin Irvine. Suspected of adultery, Larita Filton (Jeans) is divorced by her husband and flees the scandal for France, where she meets a young man (Irvine) unaware of her past. They marry, but soon Larita’s reputation as a woman of “easy virtue” returns to haunt her.


ROPE
1948, Universal, 80 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

This startling Alfred Hitchcock film was doubly daring for 1948: First, it risked depicting the Leopold & Loeb-like tale of homosexual lovers committing murder solely for the thrill. If that wasn’t enough, it told the tale in a series of long, 10-minute takes, unlike anything any director had previously attempted. Having passed over the heads of most audiences when originally released, the film is a revelation by today’s standards. With James Stewart, Farley Granger and John Dall (GUN CRAZY).


Screening format: DCP. | EASY VIRTUE: A Park Circus Films Release. Restoration by BFI National Archive in association with ITV Studios Global Entertainment and Park Circus Films. Restoration funding provided by The American Friends of the BFI, The John S. Cohen Foundation, Deluxe 142, The Idlewild Trust, and numerous film societies across the U.K. that donated to the Hitchcock 9 campaign.
