Alfred Hitchcock's America PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alfred Hitchcock's America free pdf With a sharp eye for social detail and the pressures of class inequality, Alfred Hitchcock brought to the American scene a perspicacity and analytical shrewdness unparalleled in American cinema. Murray Pomerance works from a basis in cultural analysis and a detailed knowledge of Alfred Hitchcock's films and production techniques to explore how America of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s is revealed and critically commented upon in Hitchcock's work. "Alfred Hitchcock's America" is full of stunning details that bring new light to Hitchcock's method and works. The American "spirit of place," is seen here in light of the titanic American personality, American values in a consumer age, social class and American social form, and the characteristic American marriage. The book's analysis ranges across a wide array of films from "Rebecca" to "Family Plot," and examines in depth the location sequences, characterological types, and complex social expectations that riddled American society while Hitchcock thrived there.
