Abstract

This article provides an overview of the trajectory of Alfred Hitchcock’s use of film sound as it relates to Soviet sound theory. I begin with his first use of sound in (1929), tracing a line through his middle period with (1951), and end with a film from his late period, (1963). My analysis of Hitchcock’s use of sound in these films shows the influence of Soviet sound theory and its affects on his films and his own cinematic style.
