Alfred Hitchcock's

Tuesday, January 24

U.S., 1956
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Henry Fonda, Vera Miles
Approx. 105 min. 35mm.

Returning at dawn to Jackson Heights, Stork Club bass player Henry Fonda finds himself trapped in a classic mistaken-identity case. Shot in a ruthlessly restrained semi-doc style on the locations of the actual case, with harrowing sequences of Fonda’s booking and arraignment, and memorable innocent-to-guilty dissolve.


“Has an almost Kafkaesque nightmare realism to it.”
– Pauline Kael

“Hitchcock turns the tale of an innocent man mistaken to be a ruthless killer into a harrowing Kafkaesque critique of the American justice system.”
– Eric Monder, Film Journal
