September Face the Fiction
Hitchcock Double Feature...
Notorious (1946) and Strangers On A
Train (1951)

Join us for an afternoon of mystery, intrigue and fun by the Master of
Suspense - Alfred Hitchcock.  We will screen Notorious (1946) and
Strangers on a Train (1951).

Notorious (1946) is a classic Hitchcockian post-war psychological suspense/thriller. The basis of the
film came from the 1921 Saturday Evening Post two-part short story "The Song of the Dragon" by
John Taintor Foote. The master of suspense created a compelling spy mission interwoven with a
romantic love story. The dark, intricate film is thematically concerned with both political (and sexual)
betrayal and issues of trust, friendship, and duty embodied in the characters' relationships.

Strangers on a Train (1951):  A man's joking suggestion that he and a chance acquaintance trade
murders turns deadly in Alfred Hitchcock's adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's thriller.  Tennis star
Guy Haines (Farley Granger) is enraged by his wife's refusal to finalize their divorce so he can wed
senator's daughter Anne (Ruth Roman). He strikes up a conversation with a stranger, Bruno Anthony
(Robert Walker), and unwittingly sets in motion a deadly chain of events.

Dining follows the screening @ Charlie Brown's
