ALFRED HITCHCOCK hubiera cumplido el viernes 122 años. El mejor realizador, uno de los grandes directores de la historia. Imitadísimo, el que copiaba lo técnico no llegaba en lo conceptual, y el que tenía un universo soterrado ni se acercaba en lo técnico. HILO #AlfredHitchcock Image
Vamos a hablar de su universo, constantes, temas. La mirada es la piedra angular del cine de Hitchcock, el punto de vista. Era un obseso del cine y sus resortes, sus elementos técnicos para generar emociones. #AlfredHitchcock #Cinemelodic Image
En todas sus cintas se intuye que nos habla de cine y él mismo lo decía en muchas ocasiones. La mirada como concepción global, no sólo con respecto a los personajes, voyeurs, observadores, sino en el más amplio sentido de la palabra. #AlfredHitchcock #Cinemelodic ImageImage

His job in advertising, as copy writer and as designer, he said later, was his "first step toward cinema." He read that Paramount's Famous Players-Lasky, was opening a studio in London, and in 1919, he was hired.

To celebrate the pending 120th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's birth, we begin here a longish thread recalling the film where Hitch's young career was very nearly derailed by a boy on a bus with a bomb (and a puppy😁). #Hitchcock #AlfredHitchcock
A loose adaptation of Joseph Conrad's 1907 novel, The Secret Agent, SABOTAGE (1936) co-stars Oscar Homolka, as a terrorist; and features Desmond Tester, as a likable schoolboy who is unwittingly dispatched to deliver a bomb hidden in a package, which must arrive before 1:45 p.m.
Thus begins an eight-minute sequence wherein the camera follows the boy as he makes his way across a section of London, all the while carrying a bomb. As Hitchcock later told Truffaut: 'I made a serious mistake in having the little boy carry the bomb...' #AlfredHitchcock
