Vienna readies Hitchcock event

Film Museum stages massive retro

BERLIN — The Film Museum in Vienna will present next month the most comprehensive retrospective of Alfred Hitchcock’s works ever to be showcased in Austria.

The first part of the show, which runs Dec. 1-Jan. 4, will include all of the helmer’s films that were made through 1947, including pics such as the 1925 British-German co-production “The Pleasure Garden,” “The 39 Steps” (1935), “Sabotage” (1936), “Rebecca” (1940) and “Shadow of a Doubt” (1943).

Part two of the retrospective runs Jan. 5-Feb. 4 and includes both film and television works from 1948 on, including such classics as “Dial M for Murder” (1954), “Vertigo” (1958), “North by Northwest” (1959), “Psycho” (1960) and “The Birds” (1963).

“A quarter of a century after his death, Alfred Hitchcock is still the most famous director of all time,” the Film Museum said in a statement, describing his work as “a signature of artistic genius in the midst of the Hollywood factory.”

In addition, rare documents and lectures on the director will be on display and, coinciding with the retrospective, Vienna’s Sigmund Freud Museum will present the film installation “Phoenix Tapes” by Christoph Girardet and Matthias Mueller, which includes edited excerpts from 40 Hitchcock films arranged in six sections that reveal the director’s dark obsessions and techniques.
