Caught in the summer doldrums? Why not take an online course on murder most foul as seen by director Alfred Hitchcock?
Turner Classic Movies and Ball State University will be offering the free, flexible class beginning Monday and running through Aug. 7 (enroll at Hitchcock50.canvas.net).
Participants will enjoy multimedia course materials, daily in-app messaging with movie clips, plus games and ongoing interactions with fellow film fans on TCM message boards or at #Hitchcock50.
The “50 Years of Hitchcock” class will explore the director’s filmography from his first movie, “The Lodger” (1927), to his final film five decades later, “Family Plot” (1976).
The course will run concurrently with TCM’s programming festival, “50 Years of Hitchcock,” which will screen the master of suspense’s films Wednesdays and Fridays during July.
