Where: The Venue 1550 at the Daystar Center, 1550 S. State Street
In 1956, Director Alfred Hitchcock put suspense aside and crafted The Wrong Man based on real-life events. Henry Fonda plays musician Manny Balestrero who is wrongly accused of a series of armed robberies. Filmed in semi-documentary style, Hitchcock directs a very competent cast headed by Fonda and Vera Miles as his grief-stricken wife, Rose. One of the most unusual films in the director’s canon, it’s also one of his most impressive.
