This paper discusses the topic of safety and security in two of Alfred Hitchcock's movies: "Foreign Correspondent" and "The Birds". Essentially, using these two films as a backdrop, the paper makes the argument that people feel secure when things are predictable. When things become unpredictable they are insecure.
From the Paper:"Films often offer a glimpse of the social, psychological and political conditions of their times. For example, in "Film Violence and the Institutionalization of the Cinema" J. David Slocum notes, Hollywood cinema has figured importantly in efforts to posit media as significant forces in the consolidation, extension, and continuation of the established social order (Slocum 649). What this means is that films say a lot about the social, psychological and political conditions of the time they were made in. This means that a movie from the 1940s will have significantly different social and political messages then a film made in the 1960s."
