Behind the scenes of some of the 20th century’s greatest movies with the Master of Suspense “If you make a bomb go off, the audience has a shock that lasts 10 seconds,” said Alfred Hitchcock. “But if you simply tell them there’s a bomb, the suspense is dragged out and the audience is kept on pins and needles for five minutes.” Hitchcock’s ability to sustain almost unbearable tension, frame after frame, with devices such as this earned him the moniker of the “Master of Suspense.” Enthralling plots, innovative editing, distinctive camera movement and framing: these signatures made Hitchcock a true icon of cinema history—worshipped, revered and still imitated today.
