International and New York Times bestselling author, film critic and historian Marc Eliot analyzes four films from director Alfred Hitchcock, tracing the progress of Hitchcock's personal expression and stylistic development, and revealing the deeper meanings of his 52-film career. Eliot has chosen Hitchcock because his films are easily accessible both as vehicles of entertainment and showpieces of the art of film.

THE ART OF FILM offers filmgoers an unprecedented 360-degree experience in which these American movie classics can be fully enjoyed with eye-opening backgrounders before each film, high-quality viewing on the largest, brightest screen with the best sound in Central Illinois, and opportunities for lively discussions, Q&A’s, and to meet the author at book signings with several of his best biographies.
