Do you want to understand the Alfred Hitchcock spy movie techniques? Tony Lee Moral returns to discuss his new book “The Young Alfred Hitchcock’s Movie Making Masterclass“. His book teaches you Hitchcock’s process of making a movie. We discuss these techniques with Tony and apply them to how Hitch used them in making his spy movies.
Some of the topics we examine are how Hitchcock pionered “the wrongfully accused man”, the double chase (or double pursuit), using exotic locations, suave villains, how action and fight scenes are filmed, and of course the MacGuffin, and more. As an example, we look at the Hitchcock quote about spies: “heroes in their own country and villains in the foreign country” and look at how he used this idea in his spy movies.
In addition to looking at where Hitchcock used these techniques, we also discuss where other spy movies have used some of these techniques.
It’s an interesting discussion looking at our favorite movie genre through the lens of the master director. Find out what movies use the Hitchcock spy movie techniques.
