Alfred Hichcocks Easy Virtue.
Born August 13, 1899, in London, Alfred Joseph Hitchcock's early life had its quirks; he was often made to address mom for hours as she sat in bed, and dad once punished him by having the police lock him up! Both events would later play into his work. While working for a telegraph company, he developed an interest in photography; shifting into designing title cards for an early branch of Paramount, Hitch first looked through the lens for the unfinished Number 13 (1922). Moving to Berlin, he made his formal debut with The Pleasure Garden (1925). Though it bombed, he came back with the F.W. Murnau-influenced The Lodger (1927), incorporating Expressionist techniques and exploring his 'innocent man' theme for the first time. It'd also mark the first of Hitchcock's many playful cameos.
