Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungA celebration of the San Francisco films of Alfred Hitchcock, this book examines the master director's familiarity with Northern California and how it greatly influenced his decision to use the Bay Area location in several of his landmark motion pictures. More importantly, this book shows how San Francisco was often the source of inspiration for many of these same cinema classics. The masterpieces that are examined are "Shadow of a Doubt", "Vertigo", "The Birds", "Suspicion", "Psycho", and "Family Plot". Hitchcock fans are taken on a journey around the Bay Area, experiencing cinemagraphic intrigue and learning about Bay Area history, lore, and the timeless elegance of San Francisco and its picturesque surroundings. Hundreds of historical and contemporary photographs are included, with an emphasis on those buildings and businesses that no longer exist.
