Psycho. The Birds. Rear Window. North By Northwest. Every film geek knows the major works of Alfred Hitchcock, but have you ever seen 1927's The Ring? It's Hitchcock's fourth film, and while it's never quite been considered a classic, the silent film was an influence on Martin Scorsese when he directed Raging Bull awhile back. The Ring stars Carl Brisson and Ian Hunter as two boxers who battle for the love of the same woman, played by Lillian Hall Davis. For those not heading to Comic-Con this year, you can check this out for free since the film is getting the online live-stream treatment on Saturday, July 14th. More below!
Here are a few stills from Alfred Hitchcock's influential film The Ring:
A website called The Space is hosting the live-stream, and you can bookmark the page right now to prepare for the upcoming show. But here's the catch. Because the live-stream is happening at 20:00 GMT on Friday, July 13th, that means it's actually airing at 6:00am EST/3:00am PT on Saturday, July 14th. I know, I know. But it's a newly restored version of the movie, plus it features a live score played by renowned jazz musicians the Soweto Kinch Band. Still, this is only going to be enough to alter the sleep schedules of absolute die-hard Hitchcock fans, but we figured we'd pass the word along in case that happens to be you. Of course, we'll be deep in trenches of Comic-Con bringing you all the film updates from Hall H and beyond, but if you get a chance to check this out, drop back by here and let us know how it was in the comments section! Cool?
