Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1963, 119 mins. 35mm. With Tippi Hedren, Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy. The iconic pale green coat and skirt ensemble that Edith Head designed for Tippi Hedren’s cursed Melanie Daniels is as essential an element of Hitchcock’s existential horror classic as the squawking gulls that engulf her. Especially experienced on the big screen, this boldly music-free master class in mounting and inexplicable dread feels properly apocalyptic, a film that begins as a romcom and ends as an unending screech from the void.
