Overview

Published for the centenary of Hitchcock's birth, a stunning collection of international posters and promotional material covering his entire career

Alfred Hitchcock's style was unmistakable, and his films more than ever are revered the world over--any list of the greatest films of all time is sure to include titles like Psycho, Dial M for Murder, Vertigo, and North by Northwest. For the centenary of the director's birth, renowned Hitchcock specialist Mark Wolff and Tony Nourmand, the owner of the Reel Poster Gallery, offer this extraordinary look at the way Hitchcock's influence reached even to the art of graphic design.

In full color layouts, Wolff and Nourmand survey the promotional art--including posters, lobby cards, and other promotional materials--of Hitchcock's entire career, including material so rare that the copy photographed for this book is the only one known to have survived. Among the treasures displayed: an American poster for Woman to Woman, the 1923 film for which Hitchcock wrote the screenplay and served as assistant director and art director; a poster for the first film he directed, The Pleasure Garden of 1925; and material from classic films like Strangers on a Train and To Catch a Thief. The collection consists of at least one item for each of the 39 movies Hitchcock directed and includes not only art from America and Britain, but also Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Poland, and Spain, among others. Hitchcock Poster Art is an indispensable reference for all enthusiasts of Hitchcock and film in general, providing a fascinating look at the international scope of the master's influence and appeal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The centenary of Alfred Hitchcock's birth continues to inspire new books about the enigmatic genius. Hitchcock Poster Art is a visual feast of movie posters and lobby cards, some previously unseen, spanning the director's career. The reproductions, from Hitchcock specialist Wolff's collection, represent all 39 films and include posters from over ten countries as well as a few book and magazine covers. Posters from Diabolique and other films influenced by the director are also represented. This fascinating look at movie promotion from the 1930s through the 1960s is indispensable for film collections and an affordable purchase for public libraries, too. Film historian Mogg's The Alfred Hitchcock Story is less biography than filmography. Similar in format to Robert Harris's The Films of Alfred Hitchcock (1976), it examines individual films, providing a brief synopsis and examining Hitchcock's technique and direction, from the early silent films through the 1970s. Essays by Dan Auiler (Hitchcock's Notebooks, LJ 3/1/99) and other contributors are interspersed. Tantalizing illustrations and quick summary boxes with alternate titles, first screening date, producer, country, and duration mark each film. Although Mogg doesn't break new ground, his book is a worthwhile addition to popular collections.--Kelli N. Perkins, Herrick P.L., Holland, MI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
