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."

The Framingham Public Library Main Branch is located at 49 Lexington St., (just off Rt. 126 / Concord St. near Downtown Framingham).
