This talk focuses on Alma Reville, Hitchcock’s wife and key collaborator whose influence and talent had been rather overlooked until recent years, something now changing due to a greater critical acknowledgement of the important role she played as an editor, screenwriter and creative companion from the time they met in the early 1920s to his death in 1980. Her role is also becoming more familiar to the public at large, with Alma being portrayed by both Helen Mirren and Imelda Staunton in two recent Hitchcock biopics.
The IFI is delighted that Jo Botting, a Curator at the British Film Institute National Archive in London, will give this illustrated talk which adds an important dimension to our understanding of Hitchcock films and is a fine accompaniment to the ongoing retrospective.
This event is FREE but ticketed. Please call the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or email email@example.com to reserve your seat.
The Genius of Hitchcock: Part Three, part of our complete retrospective of the filmmaker’s work, continues from February 2nd to 27th.
