Above is Scorsese’s wonderful short - The Key to Reserva.
God, I love that short. Don’t you want to just finish the story?
Inspired by the Key to Reserva, as well as David Freeman’s book, The Last Days of Alfred Hitchcock, and another wonderful book I read recently, Steven DeRosa’s Writing with Hitchcock, I’d like to try something different. I’d like to write a series on the unproduced screenplays of Alfred Hitchcock. Instead of writing long articles, I’m going to post short notes, brief thoughts, and nuggets that I hope will prove insightful or, perhaps, even inspirational. Plus, I’m going to write reviews on two of those lost screenplays, which will be fun.
I’ll update THIS POST with links to all the articles.
Hope you enjoy it.
