Alfred Hitchcock: Film & TV List


For decades the Master of Suspense had movie audiences riveted on the edge of their seats, all the while, pioneering many of the visual and storytelling techniques cinematographers, scriptwriters, and directors use today. Although Alfred Hitchcock is considered one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema, his early contributions to the film industry exhibited very little of the artistic license we've come to associate him with in his later and superior works. They did, however, provide the British filmmaker an excellent training ground and opened further opportunities. The ambitious director eventually achieved commercial success in 1927 with his very first thriller, The Lodger, which proved to be a sign of things to come. As Hitchcock's distinctive style of filmmaking began to mature, the intricate use of frames to enhance the psychological profiles of the characters, the voyeuristic camera work, and the frequent use of the 'McGuffin' as a plot-moving device, all came to define the 'Hitchcockian' film. Despite having made numerous cameos in many of his films, it wasn't until Hitchcock hosted the popular television program Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955-1962) that he truly reached the peak of the public's consciousness and became a cultural icon. Today, when we think of the great Alfred Hitchcock, his gallows humour and unmistakable profile immediately come to mind. Also, as a result of the successful TV show, we cannot help but associate Charles Gounod's musical composition 'Funeral March for a Marionette' with Hitchcock.
