The Extra Layers of Film-making
28 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although this was a particularly dull film, the 22 year old Alfred Hitchcock learned all about the extra layers that go into film-making during the post-production stage like title design, editing, etc. This was to prove a valuable tool for him in his peak years between 1954 - 1964.
