    Default All Things: Alfred Hitchcock

    I see enough cool stuff for this guy to get his own thread.

    Go Into The Story: Subliminal themes in Hitchcock's "Psycho"

    Here is Ager's interpretation of Psycho, the main theme of which, he argues, is multiple personalities, not just Norman Bates and his mother, but virtually all the characters:

    From Universal Studios Home Entertainment: Alfred Hitchcock: The Essentials Collection... -- UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

    OVERVIEW: Known for his chilling genius, Alfred Hitchcock was one of the most brilliant directors of all time. From the dark allure of the voyeur (Rear Window) to the danger of falling for the wrong woman (Vertigo) to the thrilling mistaken identity chase (North by Northwest), to the horror of inescapable evil (The Birds), and the most terrifying and shocking film of its time (Psycho), Hitchcock's films send a shiver up any spine.

    Featuring such renowned stars as James Stewart (It's a Wonderful Life), Cary Grant (The Philadelphia Story), Grace Kelly (High Society), Anthony Perkins (The Trial), Janet Leigh (The Manchurian Candidate), Tippi Hedren (Marnie), Eva Marie Saint (On the Waterfront), and Kim Novak (Bell, Book and Candle), Alfred Hitchcock: The Essentials Collection is a glimpse into the career of one of cinema's most influential and groundbreaking directors. This rare compilation also includes keepsake postcard-size replicas of the original film posters. Now, just in time for Halloween, this collectible box set of five of his most celebrated cinematic achievements including Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Psycho and The Birds is available to own on DVD on October 4, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
    I guess this might be a good starting place for people new to Hitch, but beyond that I'm not sure I see the point. Especially since there won't be a Blu-Ray version.

    Nice tribute, Adgy. I always will remember what Alfred Hitchcock said of how suspense and surprise differ:

    There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.

    We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence.

    Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!"

    In the first case we have given the public fifteen seconds of surprise at the moment of the explosion. In the second we have provided them with fifteen minutes of suspense. The conclusion is that whenever possible the public must be informed. Except when the surprise is a twist, that is, when the unexpected ending is, in itself, the highlight of the story.

    Thirty Minutes of Alfred Hitchcock’s Earliest Surviving Film, THE WHITE SHADOW, Discovered

    Thirty minutes (the first three reels of six) from Alfred Hitchcock’s The White Shadow have been discovered in a New Zealand vault. The silent feature is the earliest surviving film of the legendary director and is described as an “atmospheric melodrama starring Betty Compson in a dual role as twin sisters, one angelic and the other being ‘without a soul.’” Hitchock served as assistant director on the film to Graham Cutts and he also served as the art director, editor, and writer. The White Shadow was previously thought to be lost due to nitrate degeneration.

    The film was one of 75 uncovered last year remote storage vault held by the New Zealand Film Archive and saved by Kiwi projectionist and film enthusiast Jack Murtagh who passed away in 1989. You may recall that one of the movies previously uncovered was the John Ford silent film Upstream (1927), another picture previously considered lost. Variety reports that a restored print of The White Shadow reels will also be presented to the British Film Institute for its Hitchcock rescue project. It’s wonderful that these early films have survived, are being restored, and I’m excited to hear what other gems they’ll uncover.
