The Hitchcock 9
Film still from The Pleasure Garden (1926) courtesy Bavaria Film

Before Birds and Psycho, legendary director Alfred Hitchcock started making a name for himself by directing silent films between 1926 and 1929. The 9 works that came out of that fertile period will be screened together in a rare series presented by LACMA and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. The series will follow Hitchcock’s evolution as he learned to master his craft, through works like The Pleasure Garden (Hitchcock’s directorial debut at 25), The Manxman (a little-seen melodrama set by the sea) and The Lodger (an expressionistic masterwork.).
