Alfred Hitchcock “was born in Leytonstone, Essex, England. It was around 1920 when Hitchcock joined the film industry. He started off drawing the sets. Hitchcock was a master of pure cinema who almost never failed to reconcile aesthetics with the demands of the box-office. He directed an adaptation of 'Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca (1940). After Saboteur (1942), as his fame as a director grew, film companies began to refer to his films as Alfred Hitchcock for example Alfred Hitcock's Psycho (1960), Alfred Hitchcock's Family Plot (1976), Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy (1972).” The definition of auteur theory is “posits that the director is indeed the author of the film, imprinting it with his personal vision” (Goodykoontz, & Jacobs, 2014 sec 9.3).” When it comes to Hitchcock movies he uses an authentic color and scheme to express his view point in his movies.
