Double Take synopsis

Exploring the link between Cold War paranoia and the entertainment industry, which both depended on instilling a sense of fear, this documentary examines the efforts of acclaimed director and "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock, and how he marketed dread to a captivated audience. Hitchcock is shown in publicity appearances and portrayed by a lookalike (Ron Burrage) and an impersonator (Mark Perry), and his masterly skills of manipulation are revealed.
