Truly consummate thriller, director and screenwriter Alfred Hitchcock was born into an Anglo-Irish family in August 1899. In 1910, a boy from little Leithstone was sent to London - to a Jesuit college. Then there was the School of Engineering and Navigation, and only at the University of London was Alfred able to pursue art.
Before getting into the film studio in 1920, the future master of cinema managed to be in reserve during the First World War. Because of his overweight, the man was not allowed to go to the front, which may have saved his life. At first, Alfred was engaged in electricity at a film studio and creates credits. Until 1925, the roles of Alfred Hitchcock in films were secondary: either co-director or co-writer.
It was only in 1925 that the director's first picture was released - The Garden of Delight. Until 1934, Alfred created 18 films, but only this year the first of his world-famous works appears - The Man Who Knew Too Much.
In 1940, Hitchcock's first Hollywood film, Rebecca, was released. Although the film is quite successful, the relationship between the master and its producer deteriorates. Many talk about Hitchcock's absurd nature, but the reason is different: Alfred cannot afford to make his paintings trivial and conveyor. He meticulously works on the script and sound. From that time on, the director's production work began.
Among the most famous works of the director, it is worth noting such films as Rope, Courtyard Window, Psycho and Dizziness. The main roles of Alfred Hitchcock in his paintings, cameos, also became a kind of phenomenon, like the works themselves. He only appears as bystanders or the face of an advertising poster, but viewers instinctively seek him out as they watch.
The director died in 1980 from kidney disease. His wife Alma was with him until the last minute. Alfred became the founder of the thriller genre, the experiment in cinema and the Art House movement.
