Alfred Hitchcock’s Silent Films with Dr. Marc Strauss: The Ring (1927)

Afraid or uncertain about the entertainment value of silent films? Never seen one before, or not in a long time, and don’t want to be disappointed? Here’s your chance to not only try out the world of silent films but explore them while focused on the first nine films that Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980) ever directed, all before the sound era! Hitchcock called silent film the “art of pure cinema,” and his later fascination with suspense, mistaken identity, and camera techniques are in evidence right from the start of his career. Come relive the silent era, better understand the time period, and Hitchcock’s earliest film work all at the same time in this Provincetown Library summer series.

This Zoom series on successive Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in June and July 2021, will be hosted by Marc Strauss, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, College of Arts & Media, Conservatory of Theatre & Dance, Southeast Missouri State University. Introductions and post-film discussion will follow the appropriate chapters in Dr. Strauss’ Alfred Hitchcock’s Silent Films (2004; McFarland), available at amazon.com https://www.amazon.com/Alfred-Hitchcocks-Silent-Raymond-Strauss/dp/0786419016. (Purchase is not necessary but helpful.) Free, but you must sign up. Email araff@clamsnet.org for the Zoom link!

June 30, 2021; 6 pm: The Ring (1927; 1 hour, 48 minutes)—A ring around a finger and a ring for boxers test the lust and love among our three protagonists. Who will win?
