True Hitchcock Blonde Tippi Hedren takes to the stage to discuss her ﬁlm career and memories of Hitch from ﬁlming THE BIRDS (for which she won a Golden Globe for most promising newcomer) and MARNIE. She will also talk about her contributions to The Girl, the BBC production inspired by her relationship with Hitchcock.

Marnie Edgar is a complex character: smart, sexy, a liar and a thief. Blackmailed into marriage, she spends virtually the entire movie under a microscope as Mark, the ostensible hero, can’t decide whether to possess, protect or analyse her.

Bearing many of his hallmarks – including his ﬁrst on-screen cameo – this silent classic was regarded by Hitchcock as his ‘ﬁrst true ﬁlm’. In a tale based on the Ripper murders, a young model falls for a mysterious lodger (matinee idol Ivor Novello), despite her parents’ suspicions. Her bumptious, jealous detective ﬁancé then pushes him to an unexpected brink.

Sunday 9 September, 5.30
Robert Donat stars as a Canadian holidaying in London who ﬁnds himself on the run when a woman he meets by chance is murdered. All he knows is that she was investigating a spy ring involving the cryptic ‘39 steps’. A loose and hugely enjoyable adaptation of John Buchan’s thriller, this is one of the ﬁnest examples of the genre, richly illustrating Hitchcock’s mastery of ﬁlmmaking.
