HITCHCOCK, TRUFFAUT AND JONES
Double Feature!
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH / THE BRIDE WORE BLACK
35 mm!

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1956)
1956, Universal, 120 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock remakes his own entertaining but lightweight 1934 thriller as a melancholy examination of the pleasures and nightmares of family life. When the son of James Stewart and Doris Day is kidnapped while on vacation, the couple’s long-simmering resentments threaten to get in the way of their attempts to rescue him. Although the film is rightly celebrated for setpieces like the famous Albert Hall assassination sequence, the depth of Hitchcock’s vision is more effectively felt in the film’s quieter moments: The scene in which Stewart tells Day their son has been kidnapped is one of the most powerful in all of Hitchcock’s cinema.

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK
LA MARIEE ETAIT EN NOIR
1968, FilmDesk, 107 min, France, Dir: François Truffaut

In Francois Truffaut's delightfully Hitchcock-esque crime comedy, the ever-appealing Jeanne Moreau stars as Julie Kohler, whose betrothed was murdered on her wedding day. In seductive, methodical fashion, she locates each of the men responsible for her husband's death and gives them a taste of their own medicine.
