CHILDREN IN THE FILMS OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK. Ed. by Debbie Olson. Palgrave Macmillan, St. Martin's Press, Inc., New York, 2015. 288 pp. 22 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781137475541 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Weaving together film theory, cultural studies, and the growing field of childhood studies, this collection examines Hitchcock's use of children in his films. Many of the children and youth that appear in Hitchcock films are background or minor characters, yet they often hold special importance. From The Young and Innocent (1931), Shadow of a Doubt (1943) and Strangers on a Train (1951) to The Birds (1963) and Marnie (1964), among others, children and youth perform both innocence and knowingness within Hitchcock's complex cinematic texts. Though the child often plays a small part in Hitchcock's films, their significance - symbolically, theoretically, and philosophically - offers a unique opportunity to illuminate and interrogate the child presence within the cinematic complexity of Hitchcock's films.
