Cornell Woolrich

From the 1930s until his death in 1968, Cornell Woolrich riveted the reading public with his mystery, suspense, and horror stories. Classic films like Hitchcock's "Rear Window "and Trauffaut's "The Bride Wore Black "and novels like "Night has a Thousand Eyes" and "The Black Angel" earned Woolrich epithets like "the twentieth century's Edgar Allen Poe" and "the father of noir."
