About this item

"Fascinating... probes an even darker side of Hitchcock." Newsday

It is remarkable how infrequently, over a period of more than fifty years, Alfred Hitchcock spoke about the legendary actresses he directedincluding Ingrid Bergman, Kim Novak, and Grace Kelly. But his leading ladies greatly enriched his films, and many of them achieved international stardom precisely because of their work for Hitchcock.

Rich with new material, anecdotes, and never-before-told personal observations, this explosive portrait details Hitchcocks outbursts of cruelty, the shocking humor, and the odd amalgam of adoration and contempt that characterized Hitchcocks obsessive relationships with womenand that also, paradoxically, fed his genius.

Spellbound by Beauty offers important insights into the life of a brilliant and tortured artist, and pays tribute to the memorable actresses who gave so much to his films.

"[Spoto] informs Spellbound by Beauty with his profound knowledge of his subject, years of sound reporting, highly polished prose, and sensible analysis."

Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Expert insights into Hitchcocks films."

Oregonian (Portland)

"You will never look at a Hitchcock movie the same."

Tampa Tribune
