Alfred Hichcock’s Grand Daughters Attend Screening of His Classic Film ‘Jamaica Inn’
JAMAICA INN screened at West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center’s Silver Screen Theatre (8687 Melrose Ave). The event
kicked off with a reception at 7pm featuring a rare look at some candid, behind-the-scenes moments from Hitchcock’s personal life, followed by a panel discussion with all three of Hitchcock’s granddaughters — Tere Carrubba, Mary Stone, and Katie Fiala –
who will be speaking about their memories of their iconic grandfather with Charles Cohen, KCET’s host of the Friday night series COHEN FILM CLASSICS.
A rediscovered classic from 1939 and based on a book by the author of REBECCA and THE BIRDS, the film stars a sinister Charles Laughton in a surprisingly dark period drama about a young woman who discovers that her uncle heads up a gang of smugglers who
lures ships to their doom on the rocky coasts of Victorian era England. The movie features Maureen O’Hara in her first major motion picture role.
