For our release of Alfred Hitchcock’s early suspense classic The Man Who Knew Too Much, we turned to modern-day horror master and Hitch aficionado Guillermo del Toro (Cronos) to offer viewers a primer on just how important this thriller is in the director’s oeuvre. According to del Toro, this diabolical film, made when Hitchcock was in his mid-thirties and still working in Engand, is noteworthy not only for the elegance of its construction but also for the way it deftly mixes humor and horror, which would become a Hitch hallmark.
