about

The first comprehensively illustrated look at the career of Alfred Hitchcock.

In the tradition of the acclaimed The Hammer Story, it is an authoritative, film-by-film guide to 'the Master' and his work, from the early silent days of The Lodger, through his classic British period of The 39 Steps, to the Hollywood success of Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Psycho and beyond.

Packed with hundreds of stills and posters, with many rare or unseen images, and with additional features including the director's famous cameos, this is the ultimate book for the Hitchcock fan.
Ken Mogg is the editor of the highly acclaimed magazine and website The MacGuffin: the foremost source of Hitchcock-related discussion and news on the Internet. He corresponded with Hitchcock and was on the set of his last film. He lives in Melbourne.

Editorial Reviews

"A magnificent book for any connoisseur of the Master of Suspense" Total Film. "Lavishly illustrated throughout with rare stills and behind the scenes photos... it is both a treat to look at and a pleasure to read. Book of the Month' Film Review."Brilliant... [Ken Mogg] perhaps knows Hitchcock and his milieu better than any other film critic... rich with challenges for readers who think they know everything about Hitchcock" Dan Auiler, author of Hitchcock's Notebooks and Vertigo: The Making of a Hitchcock Classic
