Hitchcock's FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT

12:30  5:00  7:30  9:50

Saturday, December 5

(1940) Windmills turning against the wind, an assassination by camera amid a sea of rain-splashed umbrellas, a plane crash at sea, as newspaperman Joel McCrea tangles with a spy ring in pre-war London, with the unlikeliest of traitors. Menzies’ “rather unpleasant association with Hitch” yielded “some pretty good results,” including the stunning windmill and “umbrellas” sequences. DCP. Approx. 120 min.
