Hitchcock's Films is the classic work on its subject in English. I don't believe Wood ever bettered this mid-60s work, but he continued, over the years, to engage with and be engaging about the many films he analyzed. His very readable prose style will be missed.

Addendum
: Wood's very interesting essay on Touch of Evil can be read here: http://books.google.com/books?id=gBoSIyzoEeEC&pg=PA167&lpg=PA167&dq=Wood,+Robin,+%22Welles,+Shakespeare,+and+Webster,%22&source=bl&ots=JxwevRRQ_u&sig=MtxNH_PLPAQ1csGIe43f29pKgbc&hl=en&ei=7fktS8_mDYGYsgOOoIHOBA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CAoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=&f=false

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.
