Hitchcock books

(Redirected from Hitchcock Books)


The following is a list of mostly non-fiction English language titles relating to the life and career of Alfred Hitchcock.

Hitchcock remains the most studied and written-about film director of all time and there are very few aspects of his life and work that remain undocumented.

In general, self-published titles are not included in this list unless they are by a respected author. If you are an author or publisher and would like your publication to be added to this list, please email the details to admin@hitchcock.zone
