Weaving together film theory, cultural studies, and the growing field of childhood studies, this collection examines Hitchcock's use of children in his films. Many of the children and youth that appear in Hitchcock films are background or minor characters, yet they often hold special importance. From The Young and Innocent (1931), Shadow of a Doubt (1943) and Strangers on a Train (1951) to The Birds (1963) and Marnie (1964), among others, children and youth perform both innocence and knowingness within Hitchcock's complex cinematic texts. Though the child often plays a small part in Hitchcock's films, their significance - symbolically, theoretically, and philosophically - offers a unique opportunity to illuminate and interrogate the child presence within the cinematic complexity of Hitchcock's films.

About the Author:

Debbie Olson is Lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA. Her research specialties are the image of the child (particularly children of color) in film and television, New Hollywood Cinema, race and identity politics, Cultural Studies, and African Cinema.

Review:

" Children in the Films of Alfred Hitchcock amounts to a stunning collective appreciation by its editor and contributors of the significant role played by children and child-adults in Hitchcock - and of why the director's films, based on multiple points of view, favour 'liminality' over strict 'coherence'. This is cutting-edge film analysis of such Hitchcock masterworks as The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934 and 1956), Shadow of a Doubt , Strangers on a Train , The Trouble With Harry , and The Birds . Expert and illuminating." - Ken Mogg, contributor to A Companion to Alfred Hitchcock
