Death on television : the best of Henry Slesar's Alfred Hitchcock stories by Henry Slesar( )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Slesar wrote more than 40 stories that were chosen for the classic television show, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Irony, not suspense, is the key ingredient in the nineteen stories by Slesar offered in this collection. While irony often seems a by-product of cynicism, Anatole France called it "the last phase of disillusion." For Hitchcock and his writers, irony, not just suspense, was the basis of storytelling, along with its two constant companions: humor and pity. Hitchcock first spotted Slesar's work in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. The story, entitled "M Is for the Many," became an episode called "Heart of Gold." A lonely, orphaned young man just out of prison calls on the family of his cellmate. They "adopt" him and he is happy for the first time in his life -- until he learns that their kindness is directed toward finding out where his cellmate hid the money he stole. In his introduction Henry Slesar says, "Hitchcock always appreciated a good joke. He also appreciated a good story. I have never needed a more gratifying commendation than the fact that he liked the ones in this book."--Publisher's description

Joseph H. Lewis : overview, interview, and filmography by Francis M Nevins( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "prose documentary" of the eminent director's life and work, Joseph H. Lewis: Overview, Interview, and Filmography is the first book to tackle his noteworthy and often too-narrowly examined career. Interspersing Lewis's own memories and anecdotes with the author's framing material yields a work that broadly explores all of Lewis's work, from his famous My Name Is Julia Ross and the film noir masterpiece Gun Crazy to his little-known start in B Westerns (among memorable titles like Blazing Six Shooters and That Gang of Mine) and his later career directing episodes of television series like Gunsmoke and Bonanza
