Alfred Hitchcock (1899 - 1980)
Alfred Hitchcock was the most important film director of the 20th Century. Already established in Britain as a successful film-maker during the silent days, Hitchcock was wooed by Hollywood after a decade of internationally known pictures done in the 1930's. His move west in the 1940's allowed him the financial and artistic freedom which he found lacking in England and enabled him to produce films that were aesthetically cohesive, technically challenging and basically appealing to the common man. They were also enormous commercial successes. Apart form Charlie Chaplin, no other director was so personally identified with his collaborator. Hitchcock embodied the concept of "autuer" more than any other director and left an indelible mark on his craft, his audience, and the history of Western art in the last 100 years.

Young And Innocent (1937)
A film actress is murdered by her estranged husband who is jealous of all her young boyfriends.The next day, writer Robert Tisdall (who happens to be one such boyfriend) discovers her body on the beach.He runs to call the police, however, two witnesses think he is the escaping murderer.Robert (Derrick DeMornay) is arrested, but owing to a mix up at the courthouse, he escapes and goes on the run with a police constable's daughter Erica (Nora Pilbeam), determined to prove his innocence.
