Alfred Hitchcock: The Early Years Film Series
Fri May 4 / 8pm
A man in London tries to help a counterespionage agent. But when the agent is killed and he stands accused, he must go on the run to both save himself and stop a spy ring trying to steal top secret information.
This screening is part of Artisphere's Alfred Hitchcock: The Early Years Film Series. Before
there was Vertigo, The Birds and Rear Window, Hitchcock directed films
for over a decade that—beyond simply laying the groundwork for his later
works—are considered masterpieces in their own right. Every Friday in
May, Artisphere will screen a different classic from the “master of
suspense” released before 1940.
