Last Days of Alfred Hitchcock

Last Days of Alfred Hitchcock

By David Freeman

 

In The Last Days of Alfred Hitchcock, David Freeman, screenwriter and Hitchcock's last collaborator, has written a penetrating account of his experience working with the famous director. He takes the reader behind the scenes, into Hitchcock's home and into the Universal Studios bungalow, where the director planned his movies, and illuminates a very private side of the man. In the time they spent collaborating on the thriller The Short Night- the director's final film project, which remains unproduced-Hitchcock was in constant pain and suffered from severe depression about his health and that of his wife, Alma. Nevertheless, he worked steadily and reminisced about his life, his films, and the people he knew, including Ingrid Bergman, Howard Hughes, Cary Grant, and Kim Novak.

 

This unique vollume includes a new introduction by the author, the complete screenplay of The Short Night as well as commentary on the screenplay, and a complete filmography. The Last Days of Alfred Hitchcock will fascinate and enlighten anyone who's ever enjoyed the work of this cinematic giant, whose classic films continue to fascinate us.
