A year-long series of the master's best.
Although frequently praised as a legendary director, Alfred Hitchcock never won an Oscar for his films. Only well after their release did Hitchcock's creepy masterpieces of suspense win worldwide acclaim and did the director gain recognition through lifetime achievement awards. Film historian and acclaimed critic Andrew Sarris said that Alfred Hitchcock united important stylistic precedents to create "transcendent thrillers." And that "unfortunately, Hitchcock seldom receives the visual analysis he deserves."
Well, the Everett Public Library is going to spend a year giving him just that attention. On the last Wednesday of every month, at 1:30, we will present, view, and discuss a Hitchcock masterpiece. The screenings repeat at 6:30. All library programs are free and open to the public.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact the Evergreen Branch reference desk in person or via phone at 425-257-8250.
