After a few box-office misses (Marnie, Torn Curtain, and Topaz), Alfred Hitchcock finally had a hit with his penultimate movie, Frenzy (1972). Shot in London (the first time he’d filmed there in two decades), the story is classic Hitch, packed with nail-biting suspense as it follows the hunt for the Necktie Murderer, a serial killer who rapes women and strangles them with a necktie. Catch the movie tonight when it screens outdoors at the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival.
