The silent pictures were the purest form of cinema.
— Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock has defined much for classic cinema.  A short list consists of making his name a style unto itself and actors legendary icons. Though we see so much of his influence, little has been watched from his early career...as a silent film director!  Sir Alfred's rare silent films are fascinating celluloid predecessors and gems to behold  at SF Silent Film Festival's premiere of Hitchcock 9. The gallery below is our homage and a deeper token of appreciation is to see them on that glorious theatre screen with musical accompaniment, June 13-16 at Castro Theatre.
