FRIDAY, 8.10.18 

9:30 PM - 11:30 PM 

1945, Alfred Hitchcock, USA, 111 min.

Forks and white tablecloths take on a whole new significance in this literally spellbinding thriller by master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock. The sumptuous musical score by Miklos Rozsa picked up the Academy Award, but it is the archetypal dream sequenceby surrealist icon Salvador Dalí that is the film’s crowning achievement. If the screen crackles with repressed sexual energy between Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck, there is a reason: they were having an affair during filming.

“More than a literal ‘chase’ takes place here—more than a run from the police. A ‘chase’ of even more suspenseful moment is made through the mind of a man… Mr. Hitchcock has used some startling images to symbolize the content of dreams—images designed by Salvador. But his real success is in creating the illusion of love.”

—Bosley Crowther, New York Times
