    On April 29, 1980, the world lost a great storyteller when Alfred Hitchcock, the “Master of Suspense,” died in his Bel Aire home at the age of 81. His repertoire included more than 50 films in the suspense genre – films such as “The Birds,” “Psycho,” “North by Northwest” and others. The 2012 film “Hitchcock”, which purported to tell the director's life story, gave little attention to his faith. Instead, it spotlighted Hitch's alleged behind-the-scenes discord with his wife of 54 years, screenwriter Alma Reville, and his domineering approach to actors on the set of his films. Two biographies...

    Sometimes restrictions serve to bring out our creativity in startling and memorable ways There was a time in the early years of motion pictures when a kiss was the ultimate expression of love. Anything beyond a brush of the lips was left to the imagination, and love scenes were actually more potent because of it.In the 1930s a strict code dictated to directors and writers the lines of demarcation between what was permissible, not only for lovemaking, but also for vulgarity and other delicate themes. Though marked in part by what was considered backward in the era [i.e., miscegenation – ed],...

    Left: Alfred Hitchcock directing Family Plot inside Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, California, in the summer of 1975 (Photo: Stan Osborne | Wikipedia). Right: The cover of the new biography of Hitchcock, written by Peter Ackroyd. Following hard on the heels of last year’s fascinating Charlie Chaplin, Peter Ackroyd turns his attention to yet another ‘Cockney visionary’ with the publication of Alfred Hitchcock (Chatto & Windus). Hitchcock is one of the most written about directors in the history of cinema, certainly in the English-speaking world. What could be left to say of a man about whom it has all been...

    A holocaust documentary about unreleased Alfred Hitchcock footage of the liberation of Nazi concentration camps aired in 15 countries Monday, as part of the international Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorations. HBOs Night Will Fall includes harrowing footage captured by the legendary filmmaker, who recorded the grim scene that met Allied troops at Bergen-Belsen, Dachau and Auschwitz in the spring of 1945. Initially, Hitchcock together with media baron Sidney Bernstein were commissioned by the British government to make German Concentration Camps Factual Survey, a documentary that was intended to show Germans the horrors of Nazi brutality.

    In 1945, Britains army film unit commissioned a sprawling doc on the liberation of Nazi concentration camps, supervised by Hitchcock. A new film explores the forgotten masterpiece. It is, perhaps, the greatest documentary never made. Back in 1945, Sidney Bernstein, the chief of the Psychological Warfare Film Section of the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, was commissioned to create the definitive documentary chronicling the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. Bernsteins aim was, in his words, to prove one day that this had actually happened and have it serve as a lesson to all mankind as well as to the...

    Alfred Hitchcock's lost documentary about the horrors of the Holocaust is scheduled to be screened in full for the first time. The legendary moviemaker created the documentary using footage filmed during the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945, and Hitchcock was reportedly so traumatized by the shocking scenes, he took a week off work to recover. The project, originally titled Memory of the Camps, was eventually shelved, and the film reels were given to the Imperial War Museum in London. Some of the documentary was later cobbled back together and an incomplete version was screened at the...

    New York City, N.Y., Dec 8, 2012 / 06:06 am (CNA).- In a Dec. 6 article for the Wall Street Journal, Jesuit priest Father Mark Henninger recounted his time with famed director Alfred Hitchcock towards the end of his life. In 1980, Fr. Henninger was invited by his friend Father Tom Sullivan to visit Hitchcock's house in Bel Air, Calif. one afternoon to say Mass there. Recalling his introduction to the director that day, Fr. Henninger said that Hitchcock awoke, looked up and kissed (Father) Tom's hand, thanking him. The priest noted that seeing scripts from Hitchcock's films, such as...

    Actress Tippi Hedren has exposed her The Birds and Marnie director Alfred Hitchcock as a dangerous deviant who ruined her career in a shocking new HBO panel discussion held to promote upcoming biopic The Girl. The actress, who is portrayed by Sienna Miller in the new film, held nothing back as she recalled the time she spent with the movie mogul behind some of Hollywoods top thrillers. Hedren told film executives and fans, We are dealing with a brain here that was an unusual genius, and evil, and deviant, almost to the point of dangerous, because of the effect that...

    MONDAY, Oct. 10 (HealthDay News) -- Head to the American Museum of Natural History's Web site, and you'll see the major draw this fall is a splashy exhibit on dinosaurs. And not just any dinosaurs, but two-legged carnivorous, feathered "theropods" like the 30-inch-tall Bambiraptor -- somewhat less cuddly than its namesake. The heyday of the theropods, which included scaly terrors like T. rex and velociraptor, stretched from the late Triassic (220 million years ago) to the late Cretaceous (65 million years ago) periods.
  • 'Lost' Hitchcock film found in New Zealand

    One of the earliest films made by British master director Alfred Hitchcock has been found in New Zealand, researchers said. The New Zealand Film Archive on Wednesday said the first three reels of the six-reel feature "The White Shadow" were found in a cache of ageing nitrate prints given to the archive in the 1990s. It said the silent-era film, made in 1923, was believed to be the oldest surviving feature by Hitchcock, who went on to conquer Hollywood with classic thrillers such as "Psycho", "Vertigo" and "North by Northwest". The archive described the film as "a wild atmospheric melodrama"...
