THE HITCH-HIKER UK poster, 1953, from the #MBCarchive

The only true film noir ever directed by a woman, this tour-de-force thriller is a classic, tension-packed, three-way dance of death about two middle-class American homebodies on vacation in Mexico on a long-awaited fishing trip. Suddenly their car and their very lives are commandeered by psychopathic serial killer.

"A woman of extraordinary talents, and one of those

talents was directing. Her considerable accomplishments

as a filmmaker...represent a singular achievement

in American cinema."-Martin Scorsese, The New York Times


MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:


The MBC Interactive Archive Project debuts the 1940s tonight…

after 50 years (so far) of collecting and months of cataloging, organizing, grouping and scanning images to represent the history of cinema illustrated by vintage memorabilia and ephemera. Tonight we reveal the 1940s section of the project, from World War II, through Film Noir in the USA and France, escapist musicals, and another great decade of the Master of Suspense. Every three months we will debut a new decade of images from the archive. This is the third installment, complemented by an ongoing MBC retrospective of highlights of world cinema. This overview will reveal a world of images to tell the history of cinema in a theatrical setting. Hope to see you there!”-Dana Keith, MBC Founder & Director, and collector!
