If I have to explain why twelve hours of Truffaut interviewing Hitchcock (split into thirty minute segments) is amazing then you’ll probably be bored by it.
Back in 1962, François Truffaut, the inspiration behind French New Wave cinema, met with Hitchcock. And, assisted by a helpful translator, the two directors talked through Hitchcock’s life and vast filmography, moving from his early films shot it Britain (Blackmail, The 39 Steps, Secret Agent), to his later Hollywood productions – North by Northwest, Psycho and Vertigo.In total, Truffaut and Hitchcock talked for over 12 hours, and, several years later, Truffaut published a now classic book based on these conversations: Alfred Hitchcock: A Definitive Study (1967).
Or you can put on that album you’ve heard forty times before and probably never should have listened to once. Makes no difference to me.
