Hitchcock's Rereleased Films: From Rope to Vertigo
Walter Raubicheck, Walter Srebnick
Wayne State University Press, 1991 - Biography & Autobiography - 302 pages
Five of Hitchcock’s most significant films were unavailable to the public for as long as two decades before their release in 1983–84. This highly readable volume collects the most important essays written about Hitchcock and the rereleased films since that time. Covering the entire range of contemporary film criticism and theory, these studies demonstrate Hitchcock’s centrality to an understanding of how culture shapes film and how film shapes, and even creates culture.
