Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This program presents Alfred Hitchcock, the master of suspense, in a rare discussion of his film-making techniques and his illustrious 50 year career as a director. Filled with classic film clips, the program reveals that Hitchcock’s famous cinematic techniques for instilling suspense and terror were the result of his detailed planning of each scene at the script stage. Hitchcock’s career is reviewed with the use of selected film clips from his most famous movies and through the recollections of the stars who worked with him. Included are excerpts from “Psycho” with Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh, “North by North West” with Cary Grant, and “Frenzy” with Jon Finch and Barry Foster.
