Letter: Hitch framed

NOBODY DESCRIBES the imagery of cinema more incisively than Gilbert Adair and nobody has created images of greater brilliance than Alfred Hitchcock. What a shame, therefore, that Adair's masterly review of Strangers on a Train (Culture, 15 August) should be accompanied by a clumsily posed publicity still when the film itself is, as he suggests, a treasure trove of unforgettable frames.
