Film Series: The Hitchcock 9: Ciné-Concert: The Pleasure Garden
4:30pm - 5:45pm
Film: Alfred Hitchcock, 1925, 35mm, 75 minutes
Andrew Simpson in performance
Hitchcock's first solo production was The Pleasure Garden, and this new restoration brings a seldom-seen masterwork (the narrative focuses on the muddled romantic lives of two chorus girls) back into the fold of the director's most interesting early work. Incorporating additional footage and restructuring existing sequences based on new research, The Pleasure Garden definitively puts forward a case that Hitchcock was a force to be reckoned with. Alma Reville served as the film's assistant director and, by all accounts, Hitchcock proposed to her as they headed home after the shooting.
