Will a degree from Framingham State University look better than one from a mere college? And what to do about those who routinely shorten the name to "FSC" ? , (initials which no longer fit!)

The school was originally founded in 1839 as a state-funded "Normal School" to standardize, (or "normalize"), the training of teachers in America.

The Normal School was first located in Lexington and then Newton, MA and after outgrowing both locations moved to Framingham where it has flourished and grown for more than a century and a half.

The film will be introduced by Dr. Claudia Springer, Assistant Professor of Film Studies at Framingham State College. Ice Cream from Mad Willies will be served after the film.

The Edinburgh University Film Society writes, "[the film] has all the ingenuity and unparalleled mastery of suspense that made Hitchcock's Hollywood output so acclaimed and popular. It also however has a lightness of touch and warmth of humor that his later films lack."
