T he contributors to this anthology--scholars of film, history, and lite rature--show how famous films like Strangers on a Train, Vertigo, Psyc ho, and Rear Window along with more obscure ones like The Trouble with Harry and Family Plot register the ideologies and insurgencies, the n ormative assumptions and cultural alternatives, that shaped those tumu ltuous decades. The Hitchcock that emerges in this volume is not merel y the inspired technician and master of abnormal psychology that criti cs have justly hailed. He is also a cultural critic of remarkable insi ght and undeniable prescience.Hide synopsis
