Details

Born in 1899, Alfred Hitchcock directed fifty-seven films in a career that spanned the history of the moving image - from the silent era to stereo sound, black-and-white to Technicolor, widescreen to television and from Europe to Hollywood.

In his centennial year, BFI Publishing gathered together a group of American and European film and cultural critics to produce a collection of essays which displays the range and breadth of Alfred Hitchcock scholarship and assesses the significance of his singular body of work as a bridge between the fin de siecle culture of the 19th century and the 20th century. It engages with Hitchcock's characteristic formal and aesthetic preoccupations, his relationship with modernism and politics, and his preoccupation with romance and sexuality.
