Program Description

Event Details

Alfred Hitchcock is probably the most famous film  director who ever lived. For five decades, first in  England, then in Hollywood, he made fifty-four films,  including classics such as The Thirty-Nine Steps,  Rebecca, Notorious, Rear Window, North by  Northwest, Vertigo, and Psycho. Few filmmakers  have been as popular, critically celebrated, and as  influential. This presentation looks at his  achievements as “the master of suspense,” and  through dozens of film clips, examines some of his extraordinary techniques as a  director. 

Brian Rose is a professor emeritus at Fordham University. He’s written several books on television history and cultural programming, and conducted more than a hundred Q&A’s with leading directors, actors, and writers for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.
