If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, you may want to catch this rare opportunity to watch the first nine films of Alfred Hitchcock, which have been recently restored by the British Film Institute.
If not, don't worry, this touring festival may turn up in a location closer to you. Later in June it will travel to the BAMcinematek at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York and after that it travels to Los Angeles.
In San Francisco, the series begins a the Castro Theater on June 14th with Blackmail and ends with the film he considered "the first true Hitchcock picture," The Lodger.
Of course, as any reader of Escape and Suspense knows, Alfred Hitchock directed a radio presentation of The Lodger...and that was the first episode of Suspense!
