Alfred Hitchcock Revisited
Movie Addict HQ pays tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, the iconic Master of Suspense, during a rerun episode scheduled for May 15. This popular show features film historian James Colt Harrison, entertainment journalist Diana Saenger, and the Movie Addict HQ gang in a spirited discussion about Hitchcock’s greatest films and the reasons for his success. A live Chat will be available.
Hitchcock directed more than fifty feature films during a career that lasted six decades. Movie Maker Magazine called him “the most influential filmmaker of all time.” And, according to Britain’s Daily Telegraph, Hitchcock “did more than any other director to shape modern cinema.” Because Hitchcock movies boast twist endings plus thrilling plots filled with violence, murder and crime, most viewers were -- and still are -- captivated while watching them. Add suspenseful psychological and visual elements as well as stylistic presentation, mistaken identity, characters wrongfully accused --and the wow factor definitely kicks in while viewing a Hitchcock film.
