Young and Innocent
Wednesday, October 21
(NR; 1937, 83 minutes)
From Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense comes what he called his favorite of all his films. Against her better judgment, the genteel young daughter of the village police chief protects and assists an escaped murder suspect, to whom she finds herself increasingly attracted. Together they race to find the real culprit, desperately trying to stay ahead of the police. But the risk of getting caught lurks everywhere!
Wednesday, November 4
It is 1940, and London is in the midst of the Blitz. With England’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter, works under fire with a makeshift cast and crew to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits, and inspire America to join the war. Catrin and a fellow writer, Buckley, reluctantly join forces with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American public.
Once registered, a Zoom link will be sent via email. All films begin at 6:30 p.m.
Want more? A post-film open discussion will take place with Gary Zaro, Director of The International Film Festival at PVCC and Humanities Professor.
So, pop some popcorn, settle in, and escape.
