Wide Angle (1980) - The screen in Hitchcock's "Blackmail"




  • "Semiotic reading of 'a grand syntagm from the second movement' of the film, the scene of the 'attempted ravishment.' Along with an enumeration of the events, symbols are discussed, especially the varies scenes, the jester painting, the empty canvas on which Alice draws, the folding screen, and the drapes that screen the bed." — Sloan, page 441
