Cineclub celebrates the remarkable but relatively unknown career of Austrian-born actor Oscar Homolka with a dedicated season. Born in Vienna in 1898, Homolka performed on stage and in films across Europe and fled to Paris and then London when the Nazis came to power. He ended up in Hollywood playing the cruel or bumbling European until returning to London in the mid-1960s. The season will be introduced by Austrian film historians Michael Omasta and Brigitte Mayr from Synema.

Sabotage, also released as The Woman Alone, is a 1936 British espionage thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock about terrorism in the United Kingdom. It is loosely based on Joseph Conrad’s novel The Secret Agent. Hitchcock cast Oscar Homolka in the character he is most famous for: the sinister foreign villain.
