Hitchcock Masterpieces

Nov 02 - Dec 14, 2010

November 23rd class has been postponed due to weather. (Class will now go an extra week to make up the missed date.)

Six Tuesdays, Nov 2–Dec 14, 7–9pm 
Instructor: Robert Cumbow 
Tuition: $100/NWFF members, $120/general 
Max Attendance: 25

As a detailed investigation into one of cinema's landmark directors, this class will look at films from three periods of Hitchcock's remarkable career: The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes, which crowned his early British period; Notorious, which culminated his American work of the 1940s; and his astonishing succession of classics from 1956 through 1964, Vertigo, North By Northwest, Psycho, and The Birds. Class lecture and discussion will focus on how Hitchcock's stylistic and technical innovation always matched technique to theme in a way that made him the greatest of directors.

You’ll be responsible for obtaining and watching the required films on your own. All of the films are available on DVD, and may be easily obtained for rental, purchase, direct download, or on-demand viewing from Netflix, Amazon.com, Deep Discount DVD, Alibris, Powell’s, and other online resources. Be sure to obtain and watch the film far enough in advance that you will have seen it before our class on that film.
