[small surface flaw at lower right-hand corner of front cover, otherwise a nice clean copy, virtually as new]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) The author "shows us how Hitchcock achieved the mounting excitement and fear that mark this film. [He] first provides a detailed overview of the director's skill in developing the story from intriguing start to shattering climax. In the second part of the book, he goes on to a shot-by-shot analysis; using the film's continuity as his text, he describes how Hitchcock's technique accomplished its magic. Illustrated throughout with stills from the film, [the book] is a unique appreciation of the art of Alfred Hitchcock, made even more valuable by the first publication in any form of the full dialogue of [the film]."
