Film historian Sandra Shevey has been researching Alfred Hitchcock`s use of cityscapes since interviewing him in 1972 and started the Alfred Hitchcock London Locations Walk in 1999 profiling locations from `Frenzy`, `The Man Who Knew Too Much` (1956) and `The Paradine Case`.
Many of the locations sussed out by Shevey are obscure and have never before been documented. In addition, there are locations which have been discarded and re-shot, and only bits of which are used. There are faux locations and also location rejects.
Using original set designs from some of the films, along with an account of her interview with Hitchcock, Sandra Shevey runs this seminar (walk) every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 11am for 3 hours crosscutting some 10 neighbourhoods and 4 boroughs (12 locations)
Cost is £25 excl Travelcard (zones 1 and 2).

NB Sandra Shevey would also like to introduce a series of Hitchcock locations films, discussing his use of cityscape and drawing upon the set designs which allow us to compare what is really there and the extent to which the director reinvented his environment.
