Hitchcock and Selznick: The Rich and Strange Collaboration of Alfred Hitchcock and David O. Selznick in Hollywood
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1987 - 383
Hitchcock and Selznick is the story of one of the oddest partnerships in Hollywood history: between a reticent, overweight Englishman with a flair for striking detail and a penchant for the perverse, and a dynamic movie mogul with a keen eye for successful entertainment on the grand scale. It began when producer Selznick brought director Hitchcock from England (where he was already gaining widespread acclaim for his "little thrillers"), and resulted in the making of such masterpieces as Rebecca, Spellbound, and Notorious. But what Selznick did not count on was that the softspoken, unconfrontational Hitchcock was just as iron-willed as he--and more, that he was setting in motion a conflict between geniuses with wholly different approaches to the art of filmmaking. For Hitchcock was a master of suspenseful plot twists and chilling moments, but remained uninterested in what held them together. Selznick, on the other hand, believed in story, characterization, the overall picture.
