Hitchcock cabled his agreement.

Hitchcock cabled his agreement. An American raised in France, her thorough command of the cinema vocabulary, her sound judgment and exceptional human qualities, made her the ideal accomplice for the project.

A must have book for every Francois Truffaut and Hitchcock fan. It's detailed and historical. Most of the material comes from taped interviews that Truffaut made with Hitchcock in 1962.

In Hitchcock, film critic François Truffaut presents fifty hours of interviews with Alfred Hitchcock about the whole of his vast directorial career, from his silent movies in Great Britain to his color films in Hollywood.

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed. Here is a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on two cinematic masters from very different backgrounds as they cover each of Hitch's films in succession.

Hitchcock/Truffaut is a 1966 book by François Truffaut about Alfred Hitchcock, originally released in French as Le Cinéma selon Alfred Hitchcock. First published by Éditions Robert Laffont, it is based on a 1962 exchange between Hitchcock and Truffaut, in which the two directors spent a week in a room at Universal Studios talking about movies. After Hitchcock's death, Truffaut updated the book with a new preface and final chapter on Hitchcock's later films.

Hitchcock Updated Version
  • The original book is indispensable. The dialogue between Hitchcock and Truffaut is priceless. On that account, the book is five stars, and a must have. But this edition is complete garbage because the reproduction of the film stills is absolutely dismal. The stills are murky, dark, and dull. It does not compare to the edition I found in a used bookstore thirty something years ago. That was the edition with the black cover, and white lettering. Regrettably, it disappeared. I must've loaned it to someone, I don't know. But in the version I had, the stills were sharp, crystal clear reproductions. Examining the shot by shot of the shower scene, or Arbogast's tumble down the stairs was spectacular! But, in this version, it makes me want to scream a blood curdling scream! The quality is complete and utter crap... criminal! I highly recommend seeking out a previous edition, if at all possible.

  • Wonderful incite into how Hitchcock made his wonderful films. Truffaut does great interviews that bring out a lot of the personal thoughts and ideas of Alfred Hitchcock. A great read and lots of photos.

  • What could possibly be greater than a series of conversations between two famous directors, Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut? They speak a common language and each brings out something in the other as they discuss many of Hitchcock's best films - and some even Hitchcock didn't like very much. Fascinating.

  • Was a gift, and the recipient was thrilled! An awesome, in-depth look at Hitchcock through the eyes of Francois Truffaut; that's genius squared!
    The book reveals so much about both men and about film; it's an absolutely fascinating read.

  • Was going through my film books, and I couldn't find this book - finally I ordered it. Of course, once it arrived - I found my old copy - still I was happy to have the new clean copy. an instant classic and happy to keep it out on display.

  • A very boring book. i find nothing with value here, just a small talk with A.H, nothing more. this book is only for those who are "hardcore" fans of A.H, and watched all of his films. however, it is not what some people claim it is. while reading it, i just wanted to get to page 350 as soon as possible. maybe it's because i am not a "hardcore" fan.

  • This book contains the most complete self-assessment by Alfred Hitchcock of his career and approach to movie-making that is available. Most of the material comes from taped interviews that Truffaut made with Hitchcock in 1962. The 1984 revised edition contains additional material that Truffaut compiled to round out the treatment of Hitchcock's long career. A great resource!

  • You don't have to admire Hitchcock to enjoy the discussions of techniques he employs to great effect in his films -- Truffaut asks the sort s of probing questions that I probably wouldn't know to ask, so I value his insights as an auteur director himself.
