WITH A HITCH: NEW, 70MM, 3-D & TV HITCHCOCK!
Alfred Hitchcock Double Feature!
REAR WINDOW / THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH
REAR WINDOW
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.


THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1956)
1956, Universal, 120 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock remakes his own entertaining but lightweight 1934 thriller as a melancholy examination of the pleasures and nightmares of family life. When the son of James Stewart and Doris Day is kidnapped while on vacation, the couple’s long-simmering resentments threaten to get in the way of their attempts to rescue him. Although the film is rightly celebrated for setpieces like the famous Albert Hall assassination sequence, the depth of Hitchcock’s vision is more effectively felt in the film’s quieter moments: The scene in which Stewart tells Day their son has been kidnapped is one of the most powerful in all of Hitchcock’s cinema.
