Monuments and Landmarks in Alfred Hitchcock`s Films
More almost than any other oeuvre and/or filmmaker the films of Alfred Hitchcock reflect and venerate the landmarks and the monuments of London.
Our tour through his cinematic oeuvre acquaints with some of these monuments. We visit monuments immortalized in several of his great films including `Frenzy`, `The Man who Knew Too Much` (1956), `The Paradine Case`, `Blackmail` and others.
Along with looking at the buildings and the locations as they exist/existed we refer to art designs and adaptations in the films.
It is curious to see how much Hitchcock, while loving his native city and its monuments, was not against re-interpreting them to adhere to his own personal visions.
