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. Though this book was initially published in 1967 when Hitchcock was still active, Truffaut later prepared a revised edition that covered the final stages of his career. It's difficult to think of a more informative or entertaining introduction to Hitchcock's art, interests, and peculiar sense of humor. The book is a storehouse of insight and witticism, including the master's impressions of a classic like Rear Window ("I was feeling very creative at the time, the batteries were well charged"), his technical insight into Psycho's shower scene ("the knife never touched the body; it was all done in the [editing]"), and his ruminations on flops such as Under Capricorn ("If I were to make another picture in Australia today, I'd have a policeman hop into the pocket of a kangaroo and yell 'Follow that car!'"). This is one of the most delightful film books in print. --Raphael Shargel

Pressestimmen

Phillip Lopate The New York Times Book Review One is ravished by the density of insights into cinematic questions....Truffaut performed a tour de force of tact in getting this ordinarily guarded man to open up as he had never done before (and never would again)....If the 1967 Hitchcock/Truffaut can now be seen as something of a classic, this revised version is even better.

This is an important document in film history and scholarship and a fun, interesting read. Two great artists discuss film in general and Hitchcock's work in particular. The interview provides some interesting background facts about some of the films, revealing analyses, and some clues to the ideas and goals Hitchcock had when making his pictures. I would offer one caveat: after reading this book through several times, I confess that occasionally I suspect the veracity of a few of Hitchcock's remarks. Sometimes Hitchcock appears too agreeable to Truffaut's observations, endorsing statements that contradict what he's stated or suggested elsewhere. I don't mean to suggest that Hitchcock lied or behaved maliciously; I don't even mean this as criticism. I believe simply that in details that were of small importance to him, Hitchcock didn't bother to dissent, leaving Truffaut to believe as he liked. Also, they both occasionally get their facts wrong when talking about an older film, a mere failure of memory. It's helpful knowing these things going in; otherwise, no harm done-it's still a great book, one that should be read by every Hitchcock fan and anyone who's wanted to know a little bit more about any of his films.

I felt compelled to add my thoughts and 5-star rating after noticing the jape quoted from William Goldman below, along with a weak rating. This book is outstanding in many ways: as an introduction to Hitchcock, as an engrossing conversation, and chiefly as a superb exploration of cinema, and what makes cinema cinema and not stage, or print. It's like a film class in a book.

There has never been a book that so cloosely examines the life of such a great man in such an interesting format. i strongly urge anyone with any sort of interest in the cinema (old or modern) to take a look at this book - without Hitchcock cinema would never be what it is today. Arguably, without truffaut, neither would Hitchcock.

Von Ein Kunde am 15. November 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
This title is one of those books that can make people choose film as the medium of their expression. Hitch reveals the nature of cinema: it's specific qualities that makes it different from all other arts (especially from theatre- pure cinema is exactly the opposite of theater). He makes once again images most important in medium of film and reveals himself as an author that is primarily interested in form (I don't mean craft). He is something like a Picasso of Cinema: Hitch's content comes from his the exploration of form. Hitch's thoughts reminds us of what cinema should be - and together with another great author, Truffaut - makes this book a must for all film fans.

This is THE book for anyone who's seen the Master of Suspense's classics, and want to know more about them. Truffuat, a great director in his own right, is one of the best interviewers I have ever read. His own knowledge of film and its techniques lend him particular insight into what makes Hitch tick. Perhaps best of all, you learn which of his movies Sir Alfred liked; which he didn't; and even projects or sequences he always wished to do, but never could. The only problem is that if you have not seen a movie they are discussing, they explain the plot, with the ending, so watch out for spoilers. Still, Hitchcock didn't give many interviews and this one isn't to be missed

The whole book is one big interview. Francois Truffaut discussed with Alfred Hitchcock for several days about his films. When reading it, unexperienced people get a profound knowledge about the how's and why's in movies, the experienced learn about Hitchcock's life and opinions, and the movie professionals in most cases can learn something they did not know before. This book is definitely the one film book that gets you started. At this occasion, I may recommend the Biography about Billy Wilder by Hellmuth Karasek, which is pretty similar, regarding the deepness of the contents. As I already stated: Absolutely essential for Movie people - on both sides of the screen!

I agree wholeheartedly w/ my fellow reviewers: this is one great book. It is absolutely essential reading for any Hitchcock fan. Readers learn a lot about the inside of these movies (many of them great, some good, a few not so good), but, given the immense talent, skill, and experience of both interlocutors (Hitch and Truffaut), we also learn much about moviemaking, period. If I was somehow forced to own only one movie book, this would be probably be the one. (Esp. since several of Maltin's reviews have been stinking it up in recent editions of his book.)
