Main Library Auditorium

A real estate office worker (Janet Leigh) has been entrusted with an envelope full of cash to take to the bank. She takes the forty grand, and then takes it on the lam. On the way to meet her boyfriend, she stops at a roadside motel. After a friendly chat with the weirdly amiable clerk (Anthony Perkins), she begins to have second thoughts. She decides to come clean and return the money. There’s nothing like a nice shower to wash away the guilt. Terry Meehan continues his series, Hitchcock’s Best (1958-1963), introducing each film with an original video followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.
