Matthew Bell, CCU faculty member in visual arts, explores the skill with which Hitchcock balanced the demands of the commercial and the personal in his films. By looking at a variety of examples, from Hitchcock’s early British thrillers of the 1930s, to his days fighting with the Hollywood power structure in the 1940s, and finally his heyday of accomplishment during the late 1950s and early 1960s, Bell explains how Hitchcock became the embodiment of the 20th century “amateur” filmmaker.
