Example text

It’s as if we were being given privileged interior information that transcends the space of its telling. Clearly this is more than a technical matter. The film will transcend space again when, like a ghost, the tracking camera penetrates Manny’s closed front door and follows him down his hallway. Time too will be transcended. After the Prologue, the film’s credits are superimposed over a sequence set in New York’s famous Stork Club, where Manny plays the double bass in a Latin band. But again matters aren’t straightforward.

In other words, once Hitchcock’s non-thrillers were discounted as apprentice work undertaken at the behest of others, the thrillers could be read as a single homogeneous master text for the purposes of both interpretation and biography. This is an odd assumption because it draws such a sharp distinction between early projects that are presumably impersonal in their diversity and later, more consistently commercial projects that are held to be more expressive of their creator. In treating Hitchcock as his movies’ only begetter, this autobiographical model overlooks, or at least downplays, the contributions of longtime collaborators like Eliot Stannard, Charles Bennett, Bernard Knowles, Jack Cox, Joan Harrison, Robert Boyle, Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Robert Burks, George Tomasini, John Michael Hayes, and Bernard Herrmann.
