Young and Innocent (The Girl Was Young)
Alfred Hitchcock: The Early Years Film Series
Fri May 18 / 8pm
A man on the run from a murder charge enlists a beautiful stranger who must put herself at risk for his cause. Released in the U.S. as The Girl Was Young, Young and Innocent is based on a novel by Josephine Tey.
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.
