Library Journal Review

The centenary of Alfred Hitchcock's birth continues to inspire new books about the enigmatic genius. Hitchcock Poster Art is a visual feast of movie posters and lobby cards, some previously unseen, spanning the director's career. The reproductions, from Hitchcock specialist Wolff's collection, represent all 39 films and include posters from over ten countries as well as a few book and magazine covers. Posters from Diabolique and other films influenced by the director are also represented. This fascinating look at movie promotion from the 1930s through the 1960s is indispensable for film collections and an affordable purchase for public libraries, too. Film historian Mogg's The Alfred Hitchcock Story is less biography than filmography. Similar in format to Robert Harris's The Films of Alfred Hitchcock (1976), it examines individual films, providing a brief synopsis and examining Hitchcock's technique and direction, from the early silent films through the 1970s. Essays by Dan Auiler (Hitchcock's Notebooks, LJ 3/1/99) and other contributors are interspersed. Tantalizing illustrations and quick summary boxes with alternate titles, first screening date, producer, country, and duration mark each film. Although Mogg doesn't break new ground, his book is a worthwhile addition to popular collections.ÄKelli N. Perkins, Herrick P.L., Holland, MI (c) Copyright 2010.
