'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...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though biographies of the great director abound, most concentrate primarily on his career-making Hollywood blockbusters. Taylor's work, however, covers at great length Hitchcock's early, lesser-known British films. This remains "a worthy addition to the literature on Hitchcock" (LJ 10/15/78).
