||The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will screen BLACKMAIL as part of its partnership series Scare Tactics: Six by Hitchcock. Hitchcock’s silent BLACKMAIL is one of the best British films, if not the best, of the late 1920s. Made in 1929 during the transition to the sound era, it was commissioned as both a silent film and part-talkie with music and some dialogue scenes. Czech film actress Anny Ondra stars as Alice White, a young woman whose brief flirtation with an artist turns suddenly and terribly sour. Hitchcock’s masterlful thriller boasts great London locations including the British Museum, Whitehall and the Lyons Tea House at Piccadilly Circus. Screenings will be held in the Modern’s auditorium. Tickets are $9 for general admission, $8 for Modern members, $6 for LSFS and Modern Reel People members, and free for ArthouseFW passholders and students with a valid student ID. Attendees can also purchase an annual pass that will provide admittance to all screenings for the August season of ArthouseFW and beyond for $75. The Lone Star Film Society also offers a variety of membership plans that include the ArthouseFW Annual Pass. Tickets and passes are now on sale at lonestarfilmsociety.com and will be available for sale at The Modern two hours prior to showtime.
