Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

United States 1954 105 mins.

A fading tennis pro (Ray Milland), fearing he is losing his wife (Grace Kelly)—and most of all her money—to another man (Robert Cummings) arranges to have her murdered while fabricating the perfect alibi. But when the plot goes wrong he improvises a clever new plan – to frame her for murder instead. A romping plot, a gloriously slimy villain and – thanks to the fact that (as in Rope before and Rear Window after) the action is mostly constrained to one room – some of the weirdest, trickiest camera work of Hitchcock’s career.”– The Guardian

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
