Famously known as the ‘Master of Suspense,’ Alfred Hitchcock was a renowned English film director and master of horror. His cinematic approach—known as the Hitchcockian style—would follow an actor’s gaze on film, giving viewers the sensation of being in the movie. The result paired with scary plot lines left audiences having heart palpitations, gripped by fear.
In 1926, in the throes of the Jazz Age, Hitchcock married screenwriter Alma Reville in South Kensington. After a romantic honeymoon in Paris, the newlyweds settled in a new flat at 153 Cromwell Road in Kensington. The couple leased the top two floors of the building with the top floor used as private bedrooms and the lower floor used for entertaining and lounging.
