Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock, The Master of Suspense, turns 113 this year, and with the kind of serendipity that's an entertainment publicist's dream, his birthday falls on August 13th. That's why Starz has announced it will broadcast a different Hitchcock film every night, for thirteen nights, starting on the 13th. Each film will be followed by an episode of Hitch's classic anthology TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Check out the schedule of films in the press release below.
