Alfred Hitchcock and the Art of Suspense
Thursday, April 15th at 7pm
Hitchcock famously said “Some films are slices of life; mine are slices of cake.” His career spanned forty years and many film eras. Film expert Rick Winston will discuss the evolution of Hitchcock’s craft, exploring his favorite themes, his relationship with his collaborators, and his wry sense of humor no matter how grisly the subject matter.

By drawing on twelve film clips, starting with his 1925 silent “The Lodger” and continuing through to his Hollywood classics such as “Notorious” and “Rear Window,” Winston will illuminate the arc of Hitchcock’s brilliant career.

Rick Winston was the co-owner of Montpelier’s Savoy Theater for 29 years, and was Programming Director for the Green Mountain Film Festival for 14 years. He has taught film history at Burlington College, Community College of Vermont, Goddard College, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and has made presentations throughout Vermont on film history.
