    The role of the male protagonist in Hitchcock cinema.

    In Alfred Hitchcock’s films produced in the 1930s, the master director/producer develops his protagonist in each film following a generally prescriptive pattern of having the leading man stumble or fall (intentionally or not) into conspiracy, controversy, and calamity. Then, the hero must struggle to redeem himself, usually with the assistance (invited or not) by the leading female. How do these film plots portray and challenge ideals of modernism?

      Certainly Rey rhymes with “ray” which indicates ray of hope and totally accents the Star Wars theme and setting for galactic and romantic intersections. Hence, I do agree that she is on the path to becoming a Jedi.

      A Guide to Reading Comics: Where to Start?

      I have taught the art of fiction by asking students to read the original film scripts and then showing students the “final” film. I find play scripts and screenplays to be primary source materials and literary phenomena which sufficiently stand alone as works in and of themselves. It is always interesting to compare films to the screenplay or novel/book and note the editorial judgments made between the “blue print” of the writer/director’s print narrative and the work produced and presented on the silver screen.
