Alfred Hitchcock asked Sandra Shevey to be his authorized biographer in 1972 having been interviewed by the film writer the same year. Sandra remained in contact with the director whilst devising seminal film courses at USC on women in film.
In 1999 Sandra Shevey began a walk in homage to the director which runs daily for 3 hrs at 11am. The tour includes sound bites from the audio interview with Hitchcock along with set art courtesy Henry Bumstead who designed `The Man who Knew Too Much` (1956) Bumstead won an Oscar for set art on `To Kill a Mockingbird`.
Bumstead himself references Sandra Shevey in interviews as `the British lady who is ga-ga about this film`. Actually Sandra is an American.
The walk references locations from 3 major films: `The Man Who Knew Too Much` (1956), `frenzy`, and `the Paradine Case`.
Tour is £45 excl fares, tips.
