Hitchcock on Grierson

A witty presenter for Scottish Television takes the subject over from amateurs and critics to a proper understanding of it, the correct one, even.

Generous expanses of film shot, directed or produced by Grierson over his entire career are modestly described by Hitchcock as “clips” he has to show.

A lecture-demonstration in which Grierson’s art can be admired for its own sake.

Hitchcock is said to have directed his portion in Hollywood.
