Writing with Hitchcock
In spring 1953, Hitchcock decided to take a chance and work with the young writer John Michael Hayes. The four movies on which they collaborated over the next 3 years - Rear Window , To Catch a Thief , The Trouble with Harry , and The Man Who Knew Too Much - marked a sophisticated change in style for Hitchcock, inspired by Hayes's exceptional scripts.
Steven DeRosa follows Hitchcock and Hayes through each film, from initial discussions to completed picture. He also reveals the personal story - laced with humour, jealousy and frustration - of how these two very different men worked together in harmony until their relationship abruptly fell apart. This is an entertaining, in-depth look at one of Alfred Hitchcock's most fruitful creative collaborations.
