Imitation of Strife
As the master, Hitch earned world renown
Now these bastards are burgling his crown
There's Clouzot and Chabrol,
Who are both rather droll,
But Bill Castle's a certified clown.
Henri-Georges Clouzot, Claude Chabrol and William Castle were all directors of psychological suspense thrillers, and rightly or wrongly their work is often labeled "Hitchcockian". Title by our severed head writer, David Cairns. Welcome to day 5 of the week-long Hitchcock blogathon, For the Love of Film. Please help the cause by giving to the National Film Preservation Foundation.
