From the Publisher
Dan is the bestselling author of Vertigo: The Making of a Hitchcock Classic (St. Martin's Press) Hitchcock's Notebooks (HarperCollins) and the recent Hitchcock Lost. He has established himself as one of the leading experts on Hitchcock and film history; his expertise has earned him appearances in several important documentaries. He appears often television and radio programs to discuss Hitchcock, film history and contemporary cinema.
In addition to his continued work as a writer, Dan has also taught for more than twenty years in the Los Angeles area. He rebuilt moribund student newspapers and revived ignored drama programs, taking dormant, underachieving programs turning them into thriving success stories. Many of Dan's students have gone on to professional careers in journalism, theater and film.
Working with the cooperation of the Hitchcock estate, Dan was given unprecedented access to the director's notebooks, journals, and archives.
