Silent Sundays Series: Hitchcock’s ‘Blackmail’
April 14, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Next up in our Silent Sundays film series is Blackmail, Sunday afternoon, April 14th at 2:30pm!
Directed by the ‘Master of Suspense’ Sir Alfred Hitchcock, this 1929 thriller is considered one of his earliest masterpieces. The film is a “beautifully crafted early exercise in nail biting suspense from Hitchcock’s pre-Hollywood canon” (tcm.com).
In this tale of murder and mayhem, a young woman named Alice White (Anny Ondra) visits the London flat of an artist to see his works of art. When he tries to take advantage of her, she kills him in self defense. What she doesn’t know is that someone saw her leave the scene of the crime. Scotland Yard Detective Frank Webber, Alice’s boyfriend, gets assigned the case. Will he figure out that it hits so close to home?
Organist Donnie Rankin will provide live accompaniment on our 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ.
This season of our Silent Sundays series concludes with the two color technicolor swashbuckling adventure, The Black Pirate (1926) starring Douglas Fairbanks on June 2nd.
