The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library’s Friday Night Film Series, screening films weekly at 6:30 p.m. in Room 200 of the library, 60 Main St./Route 1, focuses on Alfred Hitchcock this month.

On Friday, March 15, the series will screen “Notorious” (1946, USA), a riveting World War II-set drama. The daughter (Ingrid Bergman) of a convicted traitor is hired by an American secret agent (Cary Grant) to go under cover and find German scientists hiding in Brazil. To prove her loyalty to America, she agrees to marry her father’s former Nazi conspirator (Claude Rains). The classic film is both suspenseful and romantic.

The non-rated film runs 102 minutes. Still to come in the Hitchcock series are: March 22, “Rebecca” (1940, USA); and March 29, “Shadow of a Doubt” (1943, USA).

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
