Turner Classic Movies will kick off the month of July with a tribute to the “master of suspense,” Alfred Hitchcock and the five decades of his cinematic career, ranging from “The Ring” (1927) to “Family Plot” (1976).
44 of Hitchcock’s films will be shown throughout TCM’s salute, airing Wed. and Fri. evenings at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central throughout the month of July. Here is a sampler of the films that will be shown during TCM’s Hitchcock festival:
Fri., July 7: Includes Hitchcock’s original 1934 version of “The Man Who Knew Too Much” and “The 39 Steps” (1935). Hitchcock’s 1944 wartime shorts “Aventure Malgache” and “Bon Voyage” will also be shown.
TCM has partnered with Ball State University and Canvas for another summer online classic film course, which will be focusing on Alfred Hitchcock and his films. The free course will be taught by Richard L. Edwards, Ph.D., the executive director of Ball State’s iLearn Research program. You do not have to have TCM to take the course.
The TCM/Ball State/Canvas Hitchcock online course will take place near the end of July and will conclude in August.
If you are a fan of Hitchcock and his films or if you would like to learn more about “master of suspense,” you will not want to miss out on Turner Classic Movies’ salute to Alfred Hitchcock! Highly recommended for fellow classic film fans who enjoy classic mystery and suspense features.
Wed. and Fri. evenings from July 5-July 28 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central
