Synopsis:

'A very useful book. The contrast between Mr. Hitchcock's British and American films, the bouts of jousting with producers like David O. Selznick, the controversies over Lifeboat and psycho, the pleasures of collaborating with Thornton Wilder and the exasperations of employing Raymond Chandler, are framed in fresh details... The sly sadism and offbeat sexuality in his movies are thoughtfully discussed.'---New York Times Book Review

New York Times Book Review

Review:

"'Hitch' is a treasure trove of personal anecdotes and film history. It is careful, balanced, and erudite down to the last nugget. Hitchcock emerges as a true original, an eccentric whose professional life alternates between repression and macabre indulgence, while his personal life swings between British reserve and Bohemian mischievousness....The image you take way form this biography is one of Hitch as a satiated old Buddha."
