Alfred Hitchcock : In His Own Words CD-Audio
Narrated by Alfred Hitchcock
In interviews ranging from 1955 to 1980, Alfred Hitchcock talks about the time he was locked in a police cell when he was a child and being typecast as a director of thrillers.
He also discusses his early films; the advent of `talkies'; planning Psycho; American audiences; cinema techniques; horror films, and the influence of real crimes. He considers the difference between making films in America and Britain; the importance of lighting; his female leads, and being a practical joker.
As well as critics, he also touches on avoiding cliches; murder in film; film editing and music; The Birds; the star factor in actors, and making comedies. Please note that, due to the age and nature of this archive material, the sound quality may vary. 2 CDs. 1 hr 20 mins.
