A Tribute to Alfred Hitchcock
This article first appeared on this site in October, 1997. A major update took place on what would have been The Master’s 100th birthday, on August 13, 1999. The most recent update took place in August, 2004, on the occasion of what would have been his 105th birthday.
As I found out after beginning work on the first version of this tribute, there’s a lot more out there than I first thought, and even more sites and tributes appeared because of the Centennial in 1999. Movies like Vertigo and Psycho have their own sites. Several sites have pages devoted entirely to a listing of Hitchcock’s legendary cameos in his own movies. So rather than try to write something that would duplicate the mountain of material out there, I decided to focus on finding all that material and organizing it for you.
This article consists of a listing of the most useful Hitchcock links that I have been able to find, divided into six sections: general Hitchcock sites, links to sites and pages devoted to his films, other miscellaneous pages, lists of cameos, movie reviews, where to see his movies, photos and art, lists of posters you can buy or look at, and links for a newsgroup and mailing list. If you are a Hitchcock fan, you should find enough information here to keep you busy for a long time.
However, please email me if you know of any pages I missed and I’ll add them, assuming they’re up to the Hitchcockian standard.
