As we celebrate the final part of our biggest retrospective ever at the IFI, The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock, we’ve kept the best till last. Between now and the end of March, we’ll be screening some of his most famous and iconic pictures – Rear Window, Vertigo (on 70mm), Psycho, The Birds and Marnie! One of the world’s leading authorities on Hitchcock, Professor Charles Barr, will also give an illustrated lecture on the director on Saturday, March 23rd at 14.00 (FREE admission).
Tony Lee Moral’s The Making of Hitchcock’s The Birds, the first book-length treatment on the production of this modernist masterpiece and which marks the film’s 50th anniversary, has also just been published and is now on sale in the IFI Film Shop! Featuring new interviews with stars Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren and Veronica Cartwright, as well as sketches and storyboards from Hitchcock’s A-List technical team, the book charts every aspect of the film’s production, all set against the tumultuous backdrop of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis and JFK’s presidency.
Thanks to our friends at Kamera Film Salon we have 5 signed copies of Tony’s book plus 5 pairs of tickets to give away to any of these screenings: Psycho (March 26th, 18.30), The Birds (March 27th, 18.30) or Marnie (March 31st, 16.10)!
