An evening with rare and remarkable Hitchcock clips, presented in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which holds the director’s personal archives.
A surprising look behind the scenes, with highlights including screen tests of actress Tippi Hedren (The Birds, Marnie) and a compilation of home movies that sheds a light on the private lives of the Hitchcocks between ca. 1928 – 1936.
Also excerpts from an unrealized Hitchcock film, the 'sixties Mod thriller' Kaleidoscope', a screen test with Topaz actor Frederick Stafford and the promotional policy trailer for Psycho that shows how Hitchcock and the studio team turned a low-budget shocker into a box office phenomenon.
Presentation by EYE programmer Leo van Hee and Lynne Kirste, Special Collections Curator of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Film Archive.
The Hitchcock Touch
This summer, Eye is honouring the most iconic and influential director of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, with a major retrospective including nine restored silent films. These Hitchcock 9 can be seen in the Netherlands for the first time. For the restoration of these seldom shown first films, material from the Eye collection has been used.
