Quotes of Alfred Hichcock

 

31. “I’ve never been very keen on women who hang their sex round their neck like baubles. I think it should be discovered. It’s more interesting to discover the sex in a woman than it is to have it thrown at you, like a Marilyn Monroe or those types. To me they are rather vulgar and obvious.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

32. “Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

34. “I'm a writer and, therefore, automatically a suspicious character.”

35. “Revenge is sweet and not fattening.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

36. “I can't read fiction without visualizing every scene. The result is it becomes a series of pictures rather than a book.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

37. “Seeing a murder on television... can help work off one's antagonisms. And if you haven't any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

38. “The paperback is very interesting but I find it will never replace the hardcover book -- it makes a very poor doorstop.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

39. “Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”

41. “There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

42. We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence. Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!" 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

43. In the first case we have given the public fifteen seconds of surprise at the moment of the explosion. In the second we have provided them with fifteen minutes of suspense. The conclusion is that whenever possible the public must be informed. Except when the surprise is a twist, that is, when the unexpected ending is, in itself, the highlight of the story.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

44. “We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like. I have prepared one of my own. I have placed some rather large samples of dynamite, gunpowder, and nitroglycerin. My time capsule is set to go off in the year 3000. It will show them what we are really like.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

45. “I'm a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

46. “T.V. has brought murder back into the home where it belongs.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

47. “Suspense is like a woman. The more left to the imagination, the more the excitement. ... The conventional big-bosomed blonde is not mysterious. And what could be more obvious than the old black velvet and pearls type? The perfect ‘woman of mystery’ is one who is blonde, subtle and Nordic. ... Although I do not profess to be an authority on women, I fear that the perfect title [for a movie], like the perfect woman is difficult to find.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

48. “There is nothing so good as a burial at sea. It is simple, tidy, and not very incriminating.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

49. “I have a feeling that inside you somewhere,there's somebody nobody knows about” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

50. “In feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

52. “There is nothing to winning, really. That is, if you happen to be blessed with a keen eye, an agile mind, and no scruples whatsoever.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

53. “The picture's over. Now I have to go and put it on film.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock

 

54. “I’m full of fears and I do my best to avoid difficulties and any kind of complications. I like everything around me to be clear as crystal and completely calm.” 

― Alfred Hitchcock
