Boston Globe (28/Nov/1984) - Nine more Hitchcocks to be re-released



Nine more Hitchcocks to be re-released

Last year's successful theatrical reissue of five of director Alfred Hitchcock's films, which grossed more than $17 million, has spawned more.

Universal Pictures is re-releasing the remaining nine Hitchcock films in its library in newly restored prints.

The films, to be released later this year, have been seen on TV before, but not in a movie theater since Hitchcock died four years ago.

Universal is banking $600,000 to restore and cast new prints of "Saboteur," "Shadow of a Doubt," "Psycho," "The Birds," "Marnie," "Torn Curtain," "Topaz," "Frenzy" and "Family Plot."

The total package of 14 films is expected to be playing double-bill engagements across the country before Christmas.
