Dr. Rich Edwards posted a topic in The Master of Suspense: 50 Years of HitchcockHi Hitchcock50 students! We jump right into our analysis of 50 Years of Hitchcock by looking at the opening scene from Alfred Hitchcock's first feature film, The Pleasure Garden (1925). You can watch the clip over in the Canvas course under the Monday June 26 module: "Beginnings, Part 1: Hitch's Early Life & Career." If you are not already a student in 50 Years of Hitchcock, please join our free course at hitchcock50.tcm.com This Daily Dose has three reflection questions: 1. Do you see the beginnings of the "Hitchcock touch" in this sequence? Please provide specific examples. 2. Do you agree or disagree with Strauss, Yacowar, and Spoto assessments that this sequence contains elements, themes, or approaches that we will see throughout Hitchcock's 50-year career? 3. Since this is a silent film, do you feel there were any limitations on these opening scenes due to the lack of synchronous spoken dialogue? Feel free to respond to those 3 questions, or feel free to add your own reflections. Thanks, Rich Edwards (Instructor, 50 Years of Hitchcock)
