Narrator Qarie Marshall's amiable tone takes some of the academic edge off this fascinating deep dive into the influences, life, and legacy of the world's most famous director. The episodic structure makes for easy listening and uses such personae as auteur, womanizer, and the fat man to cast different lights on Hitchcock. Marshall's even delivery has just a touch of a smile to it, mirroring the droll humor of the subject. A strong case is made for Hitchcock's cultural importance, and there's much to enjoy for any film history buff. While being an avid Hitchcock watcher isn't required, beware of spoilers for most of his films, including lesser-known ones. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
