Summary: Hitchcock's American films are not only some of the most admired works of world cinema; they also offer some of our most acute responses to the changing shape of American society in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. The contributors to this anthology--scholars of film, history, and literature--show how famous films like Strangers on a Train, Vertigo, Psycho, and Rear Window along with more obscure ones like The Trouble with Harry and Family Plot register the ideologies and
insurgencies, the normative assumptions and cultural alternatives, that shaped those tumultuous decades. The Hitchcock that emerges in this volume is not merely the inspired technician and master of abnormal psychology that critics have justly hailed. He is also a cultural critic of remarkable insight and undeniable prescience.
  • The first study of Hitchcock to undertake a systematic mapping of his precise, critical, and prescient response to American culture and society at mid-century

  • Considers Hitchcock from a new light, as much a cultural critic as an inspired technician
