One Shot Hitchcock: Contemporary Approaches to the Screen is an edited collection that interrogates poignant and memorable shots from across Alfred Hitchcock’s long transnational career. Each chapter takes one shot from a single film, beginning with his silent era and ending with Family Plot (1976). If Hitchcock is known as a director of suspense films, and films about murder, the shots discussed in One Shot Hitchcock are his crime scenes: these are the shots that resist being forgotten, these are the shots that repeatedly demand to be investigated, these are the shots in which Hitchcock’s influence on aesthetics and culture is at its most acute.
