Double Feature!

If you show a ticket stub from any film in this series at the door at the Academy's June 1st 7:30 PM screening of REBECCA at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, they will admit you for free, just for being a Hitchcock fan!

1954, Universal, 112 min, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

James Stewart is L.B. Jeffries, an ace photographer stuck in a wheelchair after breaking his leg. Despite receiving visits from his high-fashion sweetheart, Lisa (Grace Kelly), Jeffries is bored and soon resorts to spying on his tenement neighbors through a telephoto lens. Suddenly, he realizes he may be privy to the alarming disappearance of his neighbor’s ill wife.

1960, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Coming off the comparatively big-budget NORTH BY NORTHWEST, director Alfred Hitchcock decided he wanted to make a nice little, low-budget, black-and-white film for a change of pace. This was the result, and the shock waves are still reverberating. Lovely embezzler Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) takes refuge from a rainstorm off the beaten track on a lonely California highway. Unfortunately, she checks in at the Bates Motel, presided over by young Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a strange fellow living with his mother in a nearby mansion. Hitchcock used the small crew from his popular TV show for this hair-raising example of California Gothic, and it remains one of the most influential chillers ever made. With Vera Miles and John Gavin.
