I was looking through the Course Bibliography today and found that it contained my two favorite books on Hitchcock that I have in my collection and I highly recommend them.


McGilligan, Patrick. Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light (ReganBooks, 2003)

Truffaut, Francois, with collaboration of Helen G. Scott. Hitchcock/Truffaut. Revised Edition (Touchstone Book, 1985P


I don't think you'll find any better ones out there than these two. They both enhance the viewing experience for the films.

I'm most familiar with Donald Spoto's two books, both or which are superb IMO.

I read The Dark Side of Genius years ago. Enjoyed it greatly at the time, but since, I have come to wonder how much it belongs on the same shelf as the works of Albert Goldman.


What I was pleased to find in the bibliography was Tania Modelski's The Women Who Knew Too Much: Hitchcock and Feminist Theory, a great book that doesn't seem to get mentioned often, in my experience.

I'm in the process of reading McGilligan's bio right now, and it is amazingly detailed, like a behind-the-scenes look at the making of each of Hitch's films.


I also found a copy of one of Donald Spoto's books at a used bookstore in Jacksonville, FL, and I just realized that it's an autographed copy :-O (by Spoto, not Hitchcock, lol)
