"Gehring remains supreme in film comedy scholarship." - Choice

It is a validation of my writing I have struggled with for years. That is, mainstream publications often felt my writing was too scholarly, while scholarly presses sometimes felt I was too mainstream. This is the excerpt of a review from a most tony proper publication: "[ In HITCHCOCK and HUMOR ] Gehring now gives us the most sustained and thorough examination of humor in Hitchcock to date...Gehring has a breezy and playful writing style. I found myself chuckling aloud at times. His prose is also, at times wickedly cynical." -- HITCHCOCK ANNUAL
