Alfred Hitchcock was known as the Master of Suspense for good reason. As a producer and director, he made movies that delved into the psychology of his characters, created tension, built suspense and had audiences on the edge of their seats. His early movies, from the 1920s and '30s are as enjoyable today as when they were made, due to the sheer artistry of Hitchcock's direction.  Some examples are here, in a review of a Hitchcock DVD collection…

Hitchcock à la Carte - Alfred Hitchcock: cultural icon, master film director, storyteller, television host, foodie. And as Jan Olsson argues in Hitchcock à la Carte, he was also an expert marketer who built his personal brand around his rotund figure and well-documented table indulgencies.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955-1962, then called The Alfred Hitchcock Hour from 1962-1965) - The familiar "plink, plink" of the theme song, accompanied by the line drawing of a man in profile immediately identifies the show as "Alfred Hitchcock Presents/Hour."
