Presenting Alfred Hitchcock Presents #28 - Portrait of Jocelyn

Mon, 12/14/2020 - 7:32pm

Presenting Alfred Hitchcock Presents is a podcast dedicated to examining each episode of the original "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" television series, show by show in chronological order. In this installment, Mark Halliday buys a painting for his wife that somehow is replaced with a portrait of his first wife. The obsession with a woman's portrait recalls Otto Preminger's "Laura" and the new wife's feelings of not measuring up to the first wife bring to mind Hitchcock's own "Rebecca," but the secret of the "Portrait of Jocelyn" is mostly like the Humphrey Bogart film "Conflict." All worth watching and all available at AADL.

AADL Productions Podcast: Lola Jones and Carol Gibson

Thu, 06/04/2020 - 1:03pm

Lola Jones and Carol Gibson are well-known to anyone familiar with Ann Arbor history. Over the past 30 years they have sought out and documented the history of the African American experience in Ann Arbor through a series of projects under the moniker Another Ann Arbor; it is largely through their work that the Ann Arbor African American story is a part of our shared community identity. Lola and Carol stopped by the library to talk with us one day about the work they have done over the years and where they are headed next. They shared with us some of the interesting people and events they have learned about and brought to the community in their television program, their documentaries, and their book. You can now watch one of their documentaries online at aadl.org in our video collection. A Woman's Town was produced in 1991 and tells the story of Ann Arbor through the voices of prominent African American women.
