Example text

In the process of demythologizing such largerthan-life figures, Hitchcock succeeded in mythologizing himself as a giant-killer equally capable of launching the screen careers of Benita Hume, Ian Hunter, and Gordon Harker and of cutting stars like Donat and Carroll down to size. indd 22 2/5/2011 10:08:10 AM Hitchcock’s Lives 23 in the 16 November 1927 edition of the London Evening News: “When moving pictures are really artistic they will be created entirely by one man” (quoted in Spoto, Dark 103).

Besides Keats and Shakespeare, his favorite writers included Bunyan, Scott, Dickens, and Thackeray (Memory 32 and passim). In his own fiction, he drew on a variant genre of adventure stories that had emerged in late Victorian times and was associated by contemporary critics with the Highland novels Scott wrote between 1814 and 1831 (Bristow xii).

Immediately interested, Hitchcock would have recalled precedents. Falselyimputed guilt had featured in his own work since his second film, The Mountain Eagle (1926), becoming ambiguous in his third, The Lodger (1926); its literary forebears included William Godwin’s novel Caleb Williams (1794), which Dickens once commended to Poe.
