    Book details


Hitchcock's name is synonymous with suspense - that is to say, masterful, spine-tingling, thrilling, shocking, excruciating, eye-boggling suspense. With masterpieces such as "Rebecca", "Vertigo", "Rear Window", and "Psycho", Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) fashioned an extremely original approach to filmmaking that is oft imitated though never equaled; his ability to enthrall and frighten with careful pacing, subtlety, and suggestiveness earned him a prestigious reputation which grows more powerful as time goes by. He is and will always remain the master of cinematic suspense. This book, which traces his life and career, from his earliest silent films to his last picture in 1976, also includes a special bonus that Hitch fans will especially enjoy: an illustrated and annotated list of each of his cameos.

"Mystery is mystifying; it is an intellectual thing. Suspense is an emotional thing." (Alfred Hitchcock)"

Review Text

  • By Digger on 23 April 2011

    Typical Taschen fare here. The emphasis is on images rather than text (an 80 / 20 split I guess) with a fascinating selection of mostly behind-the-scenes photos, together with some familiar production and publicity stills.The text by Paul Duncan gives a good overall summary of Hitchcock's career but this is not the book to choose if you want an extensive insight to the man of his work - check out Patrick Gilligan's 'A life in Darkness and Light' for that. But this is a perfect picture-fest accompaniment.
