Hitchcock in London

Hitchcock in London

Before Alfred Hitchcock moved to Hollywood in 1939, he wrote, designed or directed over two dozen films in London, the city that was his birthplace and that remained a constant source of inspiration. The book club with Professor Susan Ohmer focuses on two of his most highly regarded films that take place in London: The Lodger (1927) and Sabotage (1936).
