Included in the showing is Rebecca, the 1940 American gothic romance/thriller, a masterpiece of haunting atmosphere and gripping suspense. Adapted from Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel it stars Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.

Psycho is one of the most spine-tingling horror films ever made, and arguably the first example of the slasher film, Hitchcock works with Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins in what is considered one of his best and greatest films.

Dial M for Murder has Hitchcock's favourite icy blonde, Grace Kelly starring. A husband plots to kill his unfaithful wife but when the plan goes awry and she survives, he must evade police suspicion in order to keep his plan uncovered.
