Audio of the 1962 interviews between François Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock.
They were eventually edited down into Truffaut’s famous book: Hitchcock: A Definitive Study of Alfred Hitchcock.
A landmark meeting of two of the great directors of the 20th century, the conversations cover Hitchcock’s life and career in great detail as they discuss films such as Blackmail (1929), The 39 Steps (1935), Sabotage (1939), Rebecca (1940), Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Lifeboat (1944), Spellbound (1945), Notorious (1946), Rope (1948), Strangers on a Train (1951), The Birds (1963), Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), North By Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960).
Truffaut did not speak much English, so he hired Helen Scott of the French Film Office in New York to act as the translator for the sessions.
