This revised edition also includes a new chapter on "Marnie,"

Synopsis:

When Hitchcock's Films was first published, it quickly became known as a new kind of book on film — one that came to be considered a necessary text in the Hitchcock bibliography. When Robin Wood returned to his writings on Hitchcock's films and published Hitchcock's Films Revisited in 1989, the multi-dimensional essays took on a new shape — one that was tempered by Wood's own development as a critic.

This new revised edition of Hitchcock's Films Revisited includes a substantial new preface in which Wood reveals his personal history as a film scholar — including his coming out as a gay man, his views on his previous critical work, and how his writings, his love of film, and his personal life have remained deeply intertwined through the years. This revised edition includes all original eighteen essays and a new chapter on Marnie titled Does Mark Cure Marnie? Or, 'You Freud, Me Hitchcock.'
