"The Great Filmmakers series provides detailed A-to-Z references about filmmakers who advanced the art of cinema, pioneered new technical processes and captivated the imaginations of audiences around the world." "Alfred Hitchcock's signature suspense thrillers are as famous as his trademark silhouette. One of the most acclaimed directors of the 20th century, Hitchcock became a household name with the release of Psycho in 1960, and his legend lives on through the rich legacy of his works still popular today." The Encyclopedia of Alfred Hitchcock is an invaluable guide to every facet of the renowned director's extraordinary rise through the ranks, from his early silent films in England to masterpieces like Psycho and Vertigo, to his long-running television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. Each of Hitchcock's more than 50 films is covered here in detail, as are the numerous television programs he directed. Other entries include notable collaborators, such as actors, producers, screenwriters, and composers; schools of Hitchcock criticism and commentators whose contributions have furthered the study of his works; and in-depth discussions of significant topics, themes, and motifs.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
All things concerning the master of suspense are elucidated in The Encyclopedia of Alfred Hitchcock. From The Birds to Joseph Conrad (whose Secret Agent Hitchcock adapted for his film Sabotage) to The Wrong Man, brief entries describe the films, stars and themes of Hitchcock's career, as well as the theorists who study him and the filmmakers who imitate him. Written by Thomas Leitch, director of the University of Delaware's film studies program, this comprehensive resource is part of Facts on File's Great Filmmakers series of A to Z references on the world's most important directors. (May) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
The majority of the 1200-plus entries in Leitch's text (film studies, U. of Delaware) fall into one of four categories: Hitchcock's individual works; collaborating actors, producers, screenwriters, and composers; schools of Hitchcock criticism, and influential commentators; and significant themes, motifs, and topics of general information. Because a vast amount of literature on Hitchcock already exists, the author indicates throughout the text sources of existing information, in order to avoid duplication. Illustrated with b&w photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
