RiverRun International Film Festival and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art welcome filmmaker Monika Henreid for a RiverRun Retro program about her father: actor, director, and Hollywood Blacklist survivor Paul Henreid. Widely remembered for his role as raconteur Victor Laszlo in the iconic Casablanca, Henreid made his Hollywood debut in Goodbye, Mr. Chips and appeared in a wide range of films across a variety of genres including Now, Voyager, Devotion, The Spanish Main, Of Human Bondage, Night Train to Munich, In Our Time, Song of Love, Deception, Rope of Sand and many others. After defending free speech during the McCarthy era, he was semi-Blacklisted until Alfred Hitchcock hired him to direct 28 episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, launching a prolific chapter in Henreid's career as a director for film and television. His last film appearance as an actor was in Exorcist II: The Heretic.
This Retro program will feature Monika Henreid discussing her dad's career with Dale Pollock, a film professor at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, followed by a screening of Now, Voyager and a reception.
