Phantom Lady: Hollywood Producer Joan Harrison, the Forgotten Woman Behind Hitchcock


Christina Lane, Chair and Associate Professor, Department of Cinematic Arts, University of Miami, tells the story of Joan Harrison who became Hollywood’s most powerful female writer-producer of the 1940s. Her career evolved from humble beginnings as Alfred Hitchcock’s secretary to becoming a close collaborator, critically shaping his brand as the “Master of Suspense.” Harrison went on to produce numerous Hollywood features before becoming a television pioneer. Ultimately, “the female Hitchcock” earned an unmatched reputation as a female executive in Golden Age Hollywood.
