Reseña del editor:

A fresh and definitive portrait of the Master of Suspense by acclaimed biographer Patrick McGilligan Full of fresh revelations, dark humour and cliff hanging suspense, this new biography of Alfred Hitchcock follows his life from its humble beginnings, as the son of an East End greengrocer, through an extraordinary career in which his films set new standards for cinematic invention, to his death as a Hollywood legend in Beverley Hills. * Gives a uniquely comprehensive and balanced view of Hitchcock's life, uncovering details not just of his work but also his personal life, and with an insight into how they interacted and sometimes clashed * Covers Hitchcock's relationships with Hollywood screen legends such as Cary Grant, James Stewart, Ingrid Bergman and Grace Kelly. * Challenges the interpretations of Hitchcock as 'the macabre Englishman' and a sexual obsessive * Describes the enduring love story behind his 54 year marriage to Alma Reville * Enduring interest in Hitchcock's influence on the thriller genre, and his 50+ films * The 25 th anniversary of Hitchcock's death is on 20 April 2005 32 pages of black and white photos. * The first complete biography of his life in 25 years
