Everything you ever need to know about Hitchcock

"The Little Book Of Hitchcock" Crime Time

Who was Hitchcock? A fat git who played practical jokes on people? A control freak who humiliated others to make himself look better? A little boy afraid of the dark? One of the greatest storytellers of the century? He was all of this and more - 20 years after his death, he is still a household name, his films have been seen by most people in the Western world, and he popularised the action movie format we see every week on the cinema screen. He was both a great artist and dynamite at the box office.

What's in it? As well as an introductory essay, each of Hitchcock's films is reviewed and analysed. In addition, the effect he has had on the industry is explained - virtually every big action movie of the past three decades has been influenced by his work. Not only that, but there's a handy reference section listing all the far weightier (and more expensive) books about Hitchcock.

Examine the genius and enduring popularity of one of the most influential figures in the history of cinema!
