My first exposure to Hitchcock was through my parents who would watch old episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. I wasn’t allowed to watch it at the time but the title sequence always stayed with me. I can remember hearing the music from the other room or catching glimpses of Hitchcock’s silhouette.

Before he came stateside and hit the ground running with Rebecca, Alfred Hitchcock was cranking out films in the UK like The Man Who Knew Too Much, The Lady Vanishes, and Sabotage.
The 39 Steps is loosely based on a book of the same name written by John Buchan. It was one of his early films that had a lot of elements that would become a staple of his films later on, most notably the wrong man theme and the use of MacGuffins to mislead the audience.
This showing will be held at Boogie's Burgers & Brew in a tented area outside with a bar room environment.
This is a 21 and over show since the area the film is shown in an area that houses a bar. Food and drinks are available during the showing of the film and there are plenty of tables set up to make eating as comfortable as possible.
Like always I would like to thank Paul our fellow Celluloid Lover and my liaison with Boogie’s. I would also like to thank Ian (Boogie’s Owner) and his crew for letting us use Boogie’s for this meet up.
This is a group that involves watching a movie and discussing said movie afterwards. What kind of movies do you ask? It can be any genre. My main criterion is that the film can carry a discussion. I might have themes for certain months like Overlooked Films, French Crime Films, Great Movies with Misleading Names or Six Degrees of separation theme with a certain actor or director.
