Books Info:

Spellbound by Beauty free pdf "Fascinating . . . probes an even darker side of Hitchcock." -"Newsday" It is remarkable how infrequently, over a period of more than fifty years, Alfred Hitchcock spoke about the legendary actresses he directed-including Ingrid Bergman, Kim Novak, and Grace Kelly. But his leading ladies greatly enriched his films, and many of them achieved international stardom precisely because of their work for Hitchcock. Rich with new material, anecdotes, and never-before-told personal observations, this explosive portrait details Hitchcock's outbursts of cruelty, the shocking humor, and the odd amalgam of adoration and contempt that characterized Hitchcock's obsessive relationships with women-and that also, paradoxically, fed his genius. "Spellbound by Beauty" offers important insights into the life of a brilliant and tortured artist, and pays tribute to the memorable actresses who gave so much to his films. "[Spoto] informs "Spellbound by Beauty" with his profound knowledge of his subject, years of sound reporting, highly polished prose, and sensible analysis."--"Richmond Times-Dispatch" "Expert insights into Hitchcock's films."--"Oregonian" (Portland) "You will never look at a Hitchcock movie the same."--"Tampa Tribune"
