Alfred Hitchcock, Maestro del Suspenso
By Mary Lynn Bushong
Translation by Traductor TT
  

1     Do you like stories that make you sit on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next? That is a genre or style of story telling called suspense. Perhaps the all time greatest suspense film director was Alfred Hitchcock.
 
2     Alfred Hitchcock was born August 3, 1899 in the east end of London, England. His parents were green grocers, and he learned to help with the family business along with his older brother and sister.
 
3     Hitchcock was educated by the Jesuits at the St. Ignatius College. He left there at the age of 16 to study engineering at the University of London. By the time Alfred was 19, he had started working for Henley Telegraph Co. His interest in art quickly moved him into their advertising department.
 
4     As a young man, Hitchcock developed an interest in the silent films. When a new studio opened in London, he got a job as a title card designer. By the time he was 23, he had worked his way up to being an assistant director. While working, he met his future wife, Alma Reville. They married in 1926 and continued working as a team both at home and with movies. She was a major collaborating influence on all his films.
 
5     Hitchcock's first completed directing job was for a film called "The Pleasure Garden." It was his next film, also in 1926, that established him as a successful director in England. In fact, he was more than just a director; he was also an art director and a writer. He also continued to design title cards until sound in movies made that unnecessary.
