Description

Don Freeman had made a name for himself as a sought-after graphic artist, political satirist, portraitist and caricature artist. His work often centered on social commentary, everyday people and places, but in the 1930s and 40s his bread and butter came from his depiction of New York and Hollywood’s Golden Age elite. In “Hitchcock Directing Foreign Correspondent” his drawing skills and ease with the lithography medium are on full display. He captures the famous director in his element, from the director’s chair on a sound stage.

Foreign Correspondent is a 1940 American spy thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It tells the story of an American reporter who tries to expose enemy spies in Britain, a series of events involving a continent-wide conspiracy that eventually leads to the events of a fictionalized World War II. It stars Joel McCrea and features Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, George Sanders, Albert Bassermann, and Robert Benchley, along with Edmund Gwenn.
