Speakers Bureau

Image for Alfred Hitchcock and the Art of SuspenseHitchcock 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.
