Alfred Hitchcock - The Title Designer
18 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There isn't much to entertain you in this film except for the fact that Hitchcock did the title designs. His director and creative team taught him everything that he needed to know in order to storyboard his own films later on in his career.
