Hitchcock: suspense, humour and tone
Susan Smith's treatment of the works of the subtlest of all filmmakers analyzes the key elements of suspense, humor, and tone across the whole of the director's career. Arguing that all three are central to our viewing experience, the book demonstrates how Hitchcock's masterly integration of these elements is the key to his success as a filmmaker.
Hitchcock: Suspense, Humour and Tone is an accessible and important new study of the director's distinctive style across a very wide range of his films.
