Based on the famous series of dialogues between Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock from the 1960s, the book moves chronologically through Hitchcock's films to discuss his career, techniques, and effects he achieved. It changed the way Hitchcock was perceived, as a popular director of suspense films - such as Psycho and The Birds - and revealed to moviegoers and critics, the depth of Hitchcock's perception and his mastery of the art form. As a result of the changed perceptions about Hitchcock, his masterpiece, Vertigo, hit the No 1 slot in Sight & Sound's recent poll of film-makers and critics, displacing Citizen Kane as the Best Film of all time.

From the beginning of his career, Alfred Hitchcock wanted to be considered an artist. Although his thrillers were immensely popular, and Hitchcock himself courted reviewers, he was, for many years, regarded as no more than a master craftsman. By the 1960s, though, critics began calling him an artist of unique vision and gifts. What happened to make Hitchcock's reputation as a true innovator and singular talent? Through a close examination of Hitchcock's personal papers, scripts, production notes, publicity files, correspondence, and hundreds of British and American reviews, Robert Kapsis here traces Hitchcock's changing critical fortunes. Vertigo, for instance, was considered a flawed film when first released; today it is viewed by many as the signal achievement of a great director. According to Kapsis, this dramatic change occurred because the making of the Hitchcock legend was not solely dependent on the quality of his films. Rather, his elevation to artist was caused by a successful blending of self-promotion, sponsorship by prominent members of the film community, and, most important, changes in critical theory which for the first time allowed for the idea of director as auteur. Kapsis also examines the careers of several other filmmakers who, like Hitchcock, have managed to cross the line that separates craftsman from artist, and shows how Hitchcock's legacy and reputation shed light on the way contemporary reputations are made. In a chapter about Brian De Palma, the most reknowned thriller director since Hitchcock, Kapsis explores how Hitchcock's legacy has affected contemporary work in—and criticism of—the thriller genre. Filled with fascinating anecdotes and intriguing excerpts, and augmented by interviews with Hitchcock's associates, this thoroughly documented and engagingly written book will appeal to scholars and film enthusiasts alike. "Required reading for Hitchcock scholars...scrupulously researched, invaluable material for those who continue to ask: what made the master tick?"—Anthony Perkins

Nicholas Haeffner provides a comprehensive introduction to Alfred Hitchcock's major British and Hollywood films and usefully navigates the reader through a wealth of critical commentaries. One of the acknowledged giants of film, Hitchcock's prolific half-century career spanned the silent and sound eras and resulted in 53 films of which Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958) and Psycho (1960) are now seen as classics within the suspense, melodrama and horror genres. In contrast to previous works, which have attempted to get inside Hitchcock's mind and psychoanalyse his films, this book takes a more materialist stance. As Haeffner makes clear, Hitchcock was simultaneously a professional film maker working as part of a team in the film factories of Hollywood, a media celebrity, and an aspiring artist gifted with considerable entrepreneurial flair for marketing himself and his films. The book makes a case for locating the director's remarkable body of work within traditions of highbrow, middlebrow and lowbrow culture, appealing to different audience constituencies in a calculated strategy. The book upholds the case for taking Hitchcock's work seriously and challenges his popular reputation as a misogynist through detailed analyses of his most controversial films.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Theater-, Film- und Medienwissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit Alfred Hitchcocks fast 50-jähriger Tätigkeit als Filmemacher bilden seine Werke eine beinahe vollständige Übersicht über die Geschichte und die unterschiedlichen Verwendungs-möglichkeiten der Filmmusik. Von Stummfilmen, über frühe Tonfilme, bis hin zu computergenerierten Toneffekten, lässt sich anhand seiner Filme die Entwicklung der musikalischen Ebene des Films mit ihren verschiedenen Stadien der Technik und möglicher Bedeutungen beobachten. Der häufig unterschätze Einfluss der Filmmusik - des Tons im Generellen - findet bei dem Thriller-Regisseur Alfred Hitchcock seit Beginn des Tonfilms besondere Zuwendung. Diese zusätzliche Dimension der kinematographischen Ausdrucksweise integriert er von Anfang an als einflussreiches Element, experimentiert und perfektioniert in Zusammenarbeit mit verschiedenen Komponisten das Zusammenspiel von visueller und auditiver Ebene. Bereits in seinen frühen Werken lassen sich Doppeldeutigkeiten, Symbolismen und psychologische Feinheiten, durch den Einsatz von Musik ausmachen, deren Vertiefung und Ausarbeitung den Charakter und Erfolg der Hitchcock-Filme begründen. Nach einer kurzen, allgemein gehaltenen Darstellung zur Theorie und Entwicklung der Filmmusik sowie zu Alfred Hitchcocks Schaffensweise und seinem Verhältnis zur Musik, werden vier Filme des Regisseurs exemplarisch analysiert, welche die musikalische Komponente in unterschiedlicher und teilweise sehr extremer Art und Weise anwenden. Die Beobachtungen werden jeweils in Zusammenhang mit der parallel verlaufender visuellen Ebene gesetzt, da die Einflussnahme der Musik nicht in Unabhängigkeit zu den jeweils gezeigten Bildern erschlossen werden kann. Folgende Filme werden behandelt: Blackmail (1929), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934/1956), Vertigo (1958) und The Birds (1963).

This new collection of writings on Alfred Hitchcock considers Hitchcock both in his time and as a continuing influence on filmmakers, films and film theory. The contributions, who include leading scholars such as Slavoj Zizek, Laura Mulvey, Peter Wollen, and James Naremore, discuss canonical films such as Notorious and The Birds alongside lesser-known works including Juno and the Paycock and Frenzy. Articles are grouped into four thematic sections: 'Authorship and Aesthetics' examines Hitchcock as auteur and investigates central topics in Hitchcockian aesthetics. 'French Hitchcock' looks at Hitchcock's influence on filmmakers such as Chabrol, Truffaut and Rohmer, and how film critics such as Bazin and Deleuze have engaged with Hitchcock's work. 'Poetics and Politics of Identity' explores the representation of personal and political in Hitchcock's work. The final section, 'Death and Transfiguration' addresses the manner in which the spectacle and figuration of death haunts the narrative universe of Hitchcock's films, in particular his subversive masterpiece Psycho.
