Restored in 4K with HDR, THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK CLASSICS COLLECTION will contain the following five features…
A riveting wartime thriller following an innocent man who suddenly finds himself in a very deadly situation. After aircraft factory worker Barry Kane (Robert Cummings) witnesses his plant’s firebombing by a Nazi agent, he finds himself falsely accused of sabotage and killing his best friend. To clear his name, Kane begins a relentless cross-country chase that takes him from Los Angeles to Boulder Dam and New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The suspense builds to a climactic finale atop the Statue of Liberty that has become one of the most iconic scenes ever filmed by the Master of Suspense.
SHADOW OF A DOUBT
After her charming Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton) comes to visit in the sleepy town of Santa Rosa, his favorite niece and namesake, “Young Charlie” (Teresa Wright), begins to suspect him of being the infamous Merry Widow murderer. As she draws closer to the truth, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse begins, leading to a shocking climax in this riveting psychological thriller from the Master of Suspense.
THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY
Set against a picturesque New England backdrop, THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY is a dark comedy starring Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, Shirley MacLaine and Jerry Mathers. The trouble with Harry is that he is dead and, while no one really minds, everyone feels responsible. After Harry’s body is discovered in the woods, several of the local residents must determine not only how and why he was killed but what to do with the body. Featuring romance, humor…and several unearthings of the corpse, this quirky romp showcases a decidedly different type of story from the Master of Suspense.
A spellbinding portrait of disturbed woman and the man who tries to save her in the unrelenting psychological thriller Marnie. A compulsive liar and thief, Marnie (Tippi Hedren) winds up impulsively marrying the very man (Sean Connery) she attempts to rob. When a terrible accident pushes her over the edge, her husband struggles to help her face her demons and her past as the plot races to a shattering, inescapable conclusion. Originally marketed as a “suspenseful sex mystery,” this shocking story from the Master of Suspense is a mesmerizing classic.
A diabolically entertaining thriller starring Karen Black, Bruce Dern, Barbara Harris and William Devane. A phony psychic (Harris) and con man (Dern) are a conniving couple who plot to swindle an old lady out of her fortune by telling her they can find her long-lost nephew. In the process, their lives become intertwined with a larcenous jewel merchant (Devane) and his beautiful girlfriend (Black) who have an affinity for kidnapping. Filled with plot twists from beginning to end, the final film from the Master of Suspense is a fitting finale to his illustrious career.
THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK CLASSICS COLLECTION arrives on 4K Ultra HD locally from May 11.
