Early Hitchcock Studies.

Here are some studies from the Hitchcock film "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1934 version). I picked it up at the dollar store, which was a great find for me. I really enjoy watching old films from when typecasting wasn't considered a BAD thing. It's great for character designers because these people's role read almost instantly (Peter Lorre looks like a fucking GOON). Nowadays, we get away with casting whichever actor is hot at the moment for any role (like Ben Stiller).

What are you smokin', Ben Stiller is the actor of the Century! You've obviously never seen "Night at the Museum".

Personally I dislike most movies created before 1960, but these look awesome! Last I spoke with you, it looked as if you were in a funk concerning your ablility to capture the very essence of your caricatures...problem solved there little buddy. I can read each of them with ease.

Hey you guys know what's funnier than raping a kid? That kid raping Chris Allison.
