CANCELLED: Film Series: Alfred Hitchcock in Color: “The Trouble with Harry”
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
This series features three films in which Hitchcock uses color to further the meaning and ideas of his films. Each screening will be introduced by Janice Simon, Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of Art History at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. One of Hitchcock’s few true comedies, this film takes place in a sun-filled autumn in Vermont, where a local man’s corpse appears on a nearby hillside and no one is quite sure what happened to him. Many of the town’s residents secretly wonder if they are responsible, including the man’s ex-wife, Jennifer (Shirley MacLaine), and Capt. Albert Wiles (Edmund Gwenn), a retired seaman who was hunting in the woods where the body was found. As the no-nonsense sheriff (Royal Dano) gets involved and local artist Sam Marlowe (John Forsythe) offers his help, the community slowly unravels the mystery. 1955, PG, 99 min.
