In the year that James Cameron's blockbuster has been re-issued for the big screen
in 3D to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, interest
in the story of this maritime disaster is as fervent as it ever was. The story has
inspired and been interpreted by countless artists – in books, plays, films, songs,
poems, opera, sculpture and more.
Professor Charles Barr shared his findings of his fascinating research into the
film that was lined up to be Hicthcock's next project after 'The Lady Vanishes'
and his first Hollywood production. Professor Barr screened a compilation of Hitchcock
clips offering a tantalising taster of what could have been and presented details
of plans made by Hitchcock along with the great Hollywood producer David O. Selznick
to take the Titanic project forward.
"My one-off visit to speak at the Hippodrome went very smoothly. Characterful
venue, committed and energetic staff, excellent technical help – and the chance,
at the end, to meet interesting people who had been drawn in by the well-judged
publicity. A positive experience at every level."
Professor Charles Barr, film historian and leading authority on Hitchcock
