Fun trivia time!
Did you know only one Hitchcock movie ever won an Oscar for Best Picture?
Which one, you think?
Well, if you guessed “Vertigo,” “The Birds,” or “North by Northwest,” alas, you’re incorrect.
The answer is “Rebecca!”
Which reminds us: what are you doing next Friday night (the 13th, no less?)
May we suggest you join us at the Golden State Theater in downtown Monterey (417 Alvarado) for a screening of the only Hitch film that won a “best picture” Oscar? It’ll be night 4 out of 5 of our “Holiday with Hitch!” Reserve your spot here.
The film is a gothic tale about the lingering memory of the title character, Maxim de Winter’s dead first wife, which continues to haunt Maxim, his new bride, and Mrs. Danvers. The film won two Academy Awards, including Best Picture, out of a total 11 nominations.
The film came out in 1940, so if you’re a cynic (like us), Hitch’s career kind nose-dived since then. After all, it was his only best-picture Oscar and the poor guy never won a Best Director Oscar (though he was nominated six times.)
The film is “By donation” meaning you can give whatever you feel like it is worth to you. In other words, t is a way for you to express your support. You can come to the door the night of the event and make a donation there instead if you prefer.
