I also love the related information about movies, actors, directors, etc... Clearly, Alfred Hitchcock, one of the greatest directors had the highest regard for Grace Kelly. This relationship predates Grace Kelly becoming "Princess Grace" and is based on Grace Kelly's abilities as an actress,
The author also gave an analysis on High Noon with a perspective that I had never heard before. The author talked about High Noon being an allegory on McCarthyism. The author correctly pointed out that the movie was based on the short story, The Tin Star. I have read that story and the movie is significantly different and better. Changing books and short stories for movies is common. But I had never thought about these changes in this manner.
The author gives similar analysis on other movies such as "Dial M for Murder".
It cost a little bit of extra money, but I listened to the book on audible book while I read it on Kindle, I purchased the book on Kindle and was able to add audio for a small amount. I am glad I did that. The reading was exactly word for word. I am not sure why, but it added to the reading experience for me.
