ALFRED HITCHCOCK: The Complete Films


ALFRED HITCHCOCK: The Complete Films

EDITED BY PAUL DUNCAN    Book Number: 86051    Product format: Hardback

Packed with one-line quotes and thoughts and extended insider knowledge captions. "I think that montage is the essential thing in a motion picture." "Nothing amuses me so much as understatement." The name Alfred Hitchcock is synonymous with suspense - that is to say, masterful, spine-tingling, thrilling, shocking, excruciating, eye-boggling suspense. With triumphs such as Rebecca, Vertigo, Rear Window and Psycho, Hitchcock (1899-1980) fashioned a new level of cinematic intrigue and fear through careful pacing, subtlety and suggestiveness. This complete guide traces Hitchcock's life and career from his earliest silent movies right through to his last film in 1976, Family Plot. Updated with fresh images, the book combines detailed entries for each of Hitchcock's 53 films, an incisive essay that sheds light on his fear-inducing devices, hundreds of stills and behind-the-scenes images and photos of the master at work, and an illustrated list of each of his cameos. Stars include of course Cary Grant, Montgomery Clift, Grace Kelly and Kim Novak. Clothbound, new from Taschen. 17 x 24cm, 688 glamorous pages, satin pagemarker.
