Summary

When Hitchcock's Filmswas first published, it quickly became known as a new kind of book on film -- one that came to be considered a necessary text in the Hitchcock bibliography. When Robin Wood returned to his writings on Hitchcock's films and published Hitchcock's Films Revisitedin 1989, the multi-dimensional essays took on a new shape -- one that was tempered by Wood's own development as a critic. This new revised edition of Hitchcock's Films Revisitedincludes a substantial new preface in which Wood reveals his personal history as a film scholar -- including his coming out as a gay man, his views on his previous critical work, and how his writings, his love of film, and his personal life have remained deeply intertwined through the years. This revised edition includes all original eighteen essays and a new chapter on Marnietitled "Does Mark Cure Marnie? Or, 'You Freud, Me Hitchcock.'"
