The Cinematographer is the Painter
22 December 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Having learned visual design in his evening classes, the 23 year old Alfred Hitchcock understood the principle of the new medium (cinema) by using visual images to tell a story rather than dialogue. The subjective camera was the new narrator in motion pictures, and he applied that by doing the title design in this film.
