UK; HITCHCOCK, ALFRED Summary: "A Companion to Alfred Hitchcock is the most ambitious and comprehensive volume ever published on the Master of Suspense, considering the full range of his career--from his earliest contributions to other directors' silent films to his own uncompleted last effort. Thirty chapters by the world's leading Hitchcock experts cover well-established approaches and cutting-edge scholarship, and tackle the most puzzling and complex problems in Hitchcock's films and contemporary film studies. Placing Hitchcock and his works in their cultural and intellectual contexts, contributors to the volume explore the genres with which his work is most closely associated; his relationships with his performers and other leading collaborators; the verbal and visual style of his films; Hitchcock's rise to prominence as the quintessential Hollywood auteur; the ideological and ethical implications of his films; and the enduring legacy he left to filmmakers and audiences alike." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.

With his popularity continuously growing, serious critical consideration of him has been long overdue. Covering all of Russell's work from his early amateur efforts to his films for the BBC and his features such as WOMEN IN LOVE, THE DEVILS, THE MUSIC LOVERS, and TOMMY, this anthology is a comprehensive sourcebook on Russell's cinema, an inquiry into the personal nature of his art, and a look at his working methods. Complete with biographical information, excerpts from the films TOMMY and MAHLER, filmography, bibliography, numerous production shots and scenes from his filoms, this volume presents us with an extraordinary picture of an immense talent."
