The Provincetown Public Library welcomes the community to participate in the November free movie month comprised of four of Hitchcock’s worst films . . . But don’t worry, film aficionado Professor Marc Strauss will explain why Hitchcock’s “worst” are actually so good! The films start at 5:30 pm and will be shown in the following order:
November 6: Secret Agent (1936; 1 hour, 26 minutes): After three British Agents are assigned to assassinate a mysterious German spy during World War I, two of them become ambivalent when their duty to the mission conflicts with their consciences.
November 13: Under Capricorn (1949; 1 hour, 57 minutes): A young gentleman goes to Australia where he reunites with his now married childhood sweetheart, only to find out she has become an alcoholic and harbors dark secrets.
November 20: Stage Fright (1950; 1 hour, 50 minutes): A struggling actress tries to help a friend prove his innocence when he’s accused of murdering the husband of a high society entertainer.
**TUESDAY** November 26: I Confess (1952; 1 hour, 35 minutes): A priest, who comes under suspicion for murder, cannot clear his name without breaking the seal of the confessional.
