Hitch: the life and times of Alfred Hitchcock

Front Cover
Pantheon Books, 1978 - Biography & Autobiography - 320 pages
10 Reviews
'A very useful book. The contrast between Mr. Hitchcock's British and American films, the bouts of jousting with producers like David O. Selznick, the controversies over Lifeboat and psycho, the pleasures of collaborating with Thornton Wilder and the exasperations of employing Raymond Chandler, are framed in fresh details... The sly sadism and offbeat sexuality in his movies are thoughtfully discussed.'---New York Times Book Review
