Notorious re-release coming to London, UK on January 16th
Category: Movie News - January 05, 2009 12:29 PM - Posted by: TeddyBlass
Opening 16 January at BFI Southbank and Curzon Mayfair in London, UK - Notorious
is one of Hitchcock’s most darkly romantic, disturbing and suspenseful thrillers.
Ingrid Bergman is magnificent as the tough yet vulnerable Alicia Huberman whose father is sentenced to death for treason, leaving her determined to prove her patriotism and atone for his guilt. Cary Grant is devastating as debonair US agent Steven Devlin, who’s torn between his love for Alicia and his distrust of her. She is enlisted to seduce Alex Sebastian (Claude Rains), a sophisticated German expatriate, to find out about his suspected Nazi affiliations. Madly impassioned by Alicia, Sebastian even marries her against the wishes of his tyrannical mother (Leopoldine Konstantin) and before long all three are entangled in a web of constrained desire and cruel deceit…

The release of Notorious
coincides with a season of Ingrid Bergman films at BFI Southbank this January, which also features a new print of Hitchcock’s Spellbound
. Stay tuned, we will be giving away tickets to one or more of these events soon.
"Casting a Shadow" Exhibition Coming to Berlin
Category: Miscellaneous - January 03, 2009 4:02 PM - Posted by: TeddyBlass
Alfred Hitchcock presented himself as the sole author of his films – as if they were the direct expression of his creative genius. In reality, however, Hitchcock was a deeply collaborative artist, working intensely with actors, producers, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, and production and sound designers to create what the public knew as "an Alfred Hitchcock film." Through drawings, paintings, storyboards and documents, the exhibition explores this film making process.
"Casting a Shadow" was first presented in 2007 at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University in Evanston/Illinois. Afterwards it was shown at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles. Many of the exhibits are from their archives. The Museum für Film und Fernsehen will bring this Alfred Hitchcock exhibition to Berlin - it's only stop in Europe - from January 29 to May 5
. The show will be augmented by exhibits from the Museum’s own archives, in particular those illuminating Hitchcock’s relationship to Germany and Berlin.
