Alfred Hitchcock told stories using a mixture of intelligent plots, witty dialogue and a spoonful of mystery and murder.In doing so, he inspired a new generation of filmmakers and revolutionized the thriller genre, making him a legend around the world.This archival interview from 1964 is a rare treat for fans of the legendary director and a fascinating glimpse of the creator of some of film's best-loved classics.Originally aired as part of the CBC series Telescope, this two-part interview offers a revealing look at the man known to his audiences as "the Master of Suspense."
Filmed on the set of what was then his latest Hollywood production, Marnie, a disarmingly relaxed Hitchcock tells interviewer Fletcher Markle about his early passion for the movie business and his modest beginnings as a designer of titles for silent films.
Clips complement the director's discourse as we hear about the difficulties of wrangling thousands of creatures in The Birds and get a dissection of the techniques he used to build dramatic tension in Psycho.He also takes viewers behind-the-scenes on the set of his current film, the now classic Marnie, showing how some of its "special effects" were created.
The interview wraps with Hitchcock's vision of the theater of the future.And -- in a line of questioning that may strike a chord with contemporary viewers -- he gives his opinion on whether horror films like his own can influence viewers to commit crimes.To Hitchcock's mind, film can have no effect on healthy mind, only sick ones.
