"In its range of reference across the entire spectrum of Hitchcock's work, it is a dazzling performance."--Robin WoodVom Verlag:
The author's treatment of the works of the most subtle of all film-makers analyzes the key elements of suspense, humour and tone across the whole of the director's career. Arguing that all three are central to our viewing experience the book aims to demonstrate how Hitchcock's integration of these elements is the key to his success as a filmmaker. Films such as "North by Northwest", "The Birds", "Shadow of a Doubt" and "Notorious" amongst others are examined in detail. The book discusses the idea of the director as a sabateur and the importance of the avoidance of cliche in Hitchcock's narrative.
