July 2017 TCM Spotlight: 50 Years of Hitchcock

6 posts in this topic

​As TCM did in 2015 with the celebrated "Summer of Darkness" noir-themed festival, and in 2016 with a month-long salute to slapstick comedy, TCM will once again partner with Ball State University for an online course revolving around the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Hitch's films air Wednesdays and Fridays in July.

That surprises me a bit, as Criterion is scheduled to release a remastered Blu-Ray/DVD in June.

TCM's Spotlight on Alfred Hitchcock will be co-hosted by TCM's Ben Mankiewicz and Swiss documentarian Alexandre O. Philippe. Philippe's new film is 78/52​, a look at how the iconic shower scene in Hitchcock's PSYCHO forever changed the grammar of cinema. I caught the screening of the film at the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto on May 5, and it's really very interesting. The scene in question is comprised of 78 shots and lasts 52 seconds, thus the unusual title.

 

Philippe's previous feature length documentaries include THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS (2010), a look at fan disenchantment with director/producer George Lucas, and ​THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS (2012) -- that would be the cephalopod who became a media sensation in 2010 when he correctly predicted the outcome of the World Cup.

I've really enjoyed the Hitchcock series and the insights of Ben Mankiewicz and Alexandre O. Philippe. But I was disappointed that your print of "Spellbound" did not contain the original colour frames.The first time I saw this film was on the big screen in 1974, and to say that the colour effect was shocking would be an understatement.
