Hi Hitchcock50 students: The second Daily Dose is the opening sequence from Hitchcock's third film, his 1927 hit The Lodger. Watch the clip in the second daily module labeled JUN 27 module in Canvas, and then post your reflections and observations on this message board. Today's three prompts are: 1. Compare the opening of The Lodger to the opening of The Pleasure Garden - what similarities and differences do you see between the two films? 2. Identify elements of the "Hitchcock style" in this sequence? Please provide specific examples. Even if you are not sure if it is the "Hitchcock style," what images or techniques stand out in your mind as powerful storytelling? Or images that provide an excess of emotion? 3. Even though this is a "silent" film, the opening image is one of a woman screaming. What do you notice in how Hitchcock frames that particular shot that makes it work in a silent film even though no audible scream that can be heard. And what other screams like that come to mind from Hitchcock's later work?
