Hitchcock Movie/Game Night

  • This location is shown only to members

There is no film adaptation of our December book selection, so we'll gather on Friday Nov. 30 for a Hitchcock mystery movie/game night. I have ordered copies of Spellbound (1945) with Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck, which is one of my favorites with a great Dali-designed dream sequence, and Mel Brooks's parody of it--High Anxiety (1977). Spellbound also has the small role of psychiatrist Dr. Brulov played by Michael Chekhov, who worked with Stanislavski in Moscow, is a nephew of author Anton Chekhov, and may have been the inspiration for Star Trek's Mr. Chekov played by Walter Koenig (who has a B.A. in Psychology). At one time, Bergman and Peck studied at Chekhov's acting school in Hollywood!

We also could play a rousing game of Clue, The Hitchcock Edition. I just obtained this game, and I think it is clever. (Gameplay is exactly like the original version, only the rooms/weapons/characters have changed.)

Please bring a snack to share with the group -- any ideas for combo Christmas/Hitchcock/Clue snacks?
