 About the Book 

Hitchcock at Work is a comprehensive, behind-the-scenes examination of the work of The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980).Film expert Bill Krohn looks beyond the usual anecdotal sources about Hitchcock, paying unprecedented attentionMoreHitchcock at Work is a comprehensive, behind-the-scenes examination of the work of The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980).Film expert Bill Krohn looks beyond the usual anecdotal sources about Hitchcock, paying unprecedented attention to the directors personal papers and the archives of the film studios he worked for. The result is a major reassessment of the working methods of the director, one which explores many of the myths - often promulgated by Hitchcock himself - that have warped previous criticism. Hitchcock at Work is fully illustrated with film stills, shots taken on set, storyboards and annotated film scripts. There is also a complete filmography.Of all the books on the Master, Bill Krohns is quite the most splendid and involving. Given the kind of breathtaking visual treatment that is the hallmark of the publisher Phaidon, keen and penetrating text is matched by images that do full justice to the remarkable pictorial qualities of Hitchcocks films. Absolutely essential. (News International Genre Hotline)The most useful book Ive read recently about Alfred Hitchcock + I bought it last year, at first sight mainly for the pictures - rare, unusual and immaculately reproduced in colour and monochrome - and then found it telling me more than I had ever known about the behind-the-scenes Hitch + a real contribution to primary scholarship.
