Young and Innocent (1937), one of the more rarely seen films by Alfred Hitchcock, hits the screens at the Trylon this weekend. When a writer named Robert discovers a body on the beach and runs to get help, two women who see him fleeing naturally peg him for the murder with the police believing the false accusations. Young and Innocent is a classic case of guilty until proven innocent by individual tenacity, but it is also a story about the fine line between danger and passion. Robert escapes from the grasp of the police dragging the daughter of an inspector with him. The couple’s mutual suspicion seems to be masking a fiery attraction as their relationship slowly evolves. Young and Innocent is not to be missed with this rare chance to see it on 35mm and to see the groundwork for a master filmmaker. Check out the amazing crane shot in the clip below.
Young and Innocent plays Friday and Saturday at 7:00 and 8:45, Sunday at 5:00, 6:45 and 8:30. Advance tickets available (with no service fee!) at www.trylon.org
