Research 101: The Master of Suspense

Comment

Thank you everyone for voting for us on Indiewire for Project of the Week. It looks like Be Natural has won, but it should be more official tomorrow!

In honor of his birthday we've dedicated this update to The Master of Suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock, also a fan of Alice Guy-Blaché.

Please note, ALL FOOTAGE used in this update comes from Alice's films. Enjoy!
