Alfred Hitchcock's career spanned more than five decades, during which he directed more than 50 films, many of them indisputable classics: Notorious, Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, and Psycho, among others. In A Year of Hitchcock: 52 Weeks with the Master of Suspense, authors Jim McDevitt and Eric San Juan provide a comprehensive examination of Hitchcock's film-to-film development, spanning from the beginning of his career in silents to his final film in 1976, including his work on two French propaganda shorts he directed during World War II and segments he directed for Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Organized into 52 chapters and arranged in chronological order, the book invites readers to spend a year with the director's most notable works, all of which are available on DVD. Each film is examined in the context of Hitchcock's career, as the authors consider the themes central to his work; discuss each film's production; comment on the cast, script, and other aspects of the film; and assess the film's value to the Hitchcock viewer. From The Lodger to Family Plot, 68 works directed by Hitchcock are analyzed. Each analysis is supplemented by key film facts, trivia, awards, a guide to his cameos, a filmography, and a listing of available DVD releases. Whether readers decide to undertake the journey through his films one week at a time or pick and choose at their discretion, A Year of Hitchcock will open the eyes of any viewer who wants to better understand this director's evolution as an artist.

The films of Alfred Hitchcock are appreciated for a variety of reasons, including the many memorable villains who menace the protagonists. Unlike so many of cinema’s wrongdoers, the Hitchcock villain was often a complex individual with a nuanced personality and neuroses the common person might not be able to relate to, but could at least understand. If such figures did not always elicit sympathy from the audience, they still possessed characteristics that were oddly appealing. And frequently, viewers found them more likable than the heroes and heroines whom they victimized. In Hitchcock’s Villains: Murderers, Maniacs, and Mother Issues, authors Eric San Juan and Jim McDevitt explore a number of themes that form the foundation of villainy in Hitchcock’s long and acclaimed career. The authors also provide a detailed look at some of the director’s most noteworthy villains and examine how these characters were often central to the enjoyment of Hitchcock’s best films. Whether discussing Uncle Charlie in Shadow of a Doubt or Norman Bates in Psycho, the authors consider what attracted Hitchcock to such characters in the first place and why they endure as screen icons. Intended for both casual and ardent fans of Hitchcock, this book offers insight into what makes villainous characters tick. While serious students will appreciate observations in Hitchcock’s Villains that will enhance their study of cinema technique and writing, general fans of the director will simply enjoy delving further into the minds of their favorite villains.

"There have been many homages to the Master. But it has been almost a decade since the most recent spate of books, and Hitchcock in Hollywood admirably fills a new need." "In this new and original assessment of Hitchcock's American career from his arrival in Hollywood in 1939 up to his last films in the 1970s, Joel Finler shows how Hitchcock succeeded in quickly fitting into the American studio system with its emphasis on stars, technical expertise, and success at the box office to become one of the most influential directors of all time. These years cover Hitchcock's most accomplished period of filmmaking and the author uncovers many links with the best of Hitchcock's earlier British films from the 1930s." "Hitchcock used the thriller as a means of probing deep into our fears and neuroses. His films work on many levels: his mastery of the cinematic medium is demonstrated not only through the movies, plot lines, characters, and relationships within his films, but also in his use of the camera, editing, color, and widescreen techniques." "As well as the films themselves, Joel Finler discusses the director's working methods - his relations with producers and production companies, Hollywood stars, writers, and other collaborators - with reference to budgets, boxoffice receipts, and Hitchcock's involvement in virtually every aspect of each production from script and design to editing and scoring." "A detailed filmography with plot synopses completes the text, which is illustrated throughout with production shots and film stills."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
