Favorite Alfred Hitchcock Quotes

1. "Every time you look at a house in Los Angeles, the real-estate agent will tell you that someone famous once lived there. It always seemed irrelevant to me: Does a property gain value just because Alfred Hitchcock used to eat breakfast there?"
Author: Claire Scovell LaZebnik
2. "Suspicion," he said. "Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. He's a genius." "Starring Cary Grant." When Lucas gave me a look, I added, "You have your priorities, I have mine."
Author: Claudia Gray
3. "Hitchcock was one of the few people in Hollywood who had a brand. Every movie he made was an Alfred Hitchcock movie, couldn't have been anyone else."
Author: David Chase
4. "Woolrich had a genius for creating types of story perfectly consonant with his world: the noir cop story, the clock race story, the waking nightmare, the oscillation thriller, the headlong through the night story, the annihilation story, the last hours story. These situations, and variations on them, and others like them, are paradigms of our position in the world as Woolrich sees it. His mastery of suspense, his genius (like that of his spiritual brother Alfred Hitchcock) for keeping us on the edge of our seats and gasping with fright, stems not only from the nightmarish situations he conjured up but from his prose, which is compulsively readable, cinematically vivid, high-strung almost to the point of hysteria, forcing us into the skins of the hunted and doomed where we live their agonies and die with them a thousand small deaths."
Author: Francis M. Nevins
5. "Alfred Hitchcock had to find ways to create tension without showing it, but now with computer-generated effects you can show anything."
Author: Giles Duley
6. "I've heard that Alfred Hitchcock said that by the time he was ready to shoot a film, he didn't even want to do it any more because he'd already had all of the fun of working it out. It's the same thing with these Frank comics."
Author: Jim Woodring
7. "Atticus, I think we're being stalked by the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock. First it was a Vulture adn now two giant ravens are coming our way." Oberon"
Author: Kevin Hearne
8. "For every answer, I like to bring up a question. Maybe I'm related to Alfred Hitchcock or maybe I got to know him too well, but I think life should be that way."
Author: Kim Novak
9. "Drama is real life – with the dull parts left out." Alfred Hitchcock"
Author: Marja McGraw
10. "I think it was Alfred Hitchcock who said 90 percent of successful moviemaking is in the casting. The same is true in life. Who you are exposed to, who you choose to surround yourself with, is a unique variable in all of our experiences and it is hugely important in making us who we are. Seek out interesting characters, tough adversaries and strong mentors and your life can be rich, textured, highly entertaining and successful, like a Best Picture winner. Surround yourself with dullards, people of vanilla safety and unextraordinary ease, and you may find your life going straight to DVD."
Author: Rob Lowe
11. "Being the object of Alfred Hitchcock's obsession was horrific, but while he ruined my career, he could never ruin my life."
Author: Tippi Hedren
12. "He was such a fabulous drama coach. What better person to have than Alfred Hitchcock? His work as a director was impeccable. I learned so much."
Author: Tippi Hedren
13. "They know you're not Alfred Hitchcock, but you need to be enough Alfred Hitchcock for them not to be bothered by it. That's a reassuring thing."
Author: Toby Jones
14. "It's one of those jobs where you go, 'Oh no, I've got to play Alfred Hitchcock. I have to play him even though I know what this is going to involve.'"
Author: Toby Jones

Today's Quote

Iubirea nascuta din frumusetea adevarata nu era pentru mine - n-aveam nimic in comun cu asa ceva. [...] insa o astfel de iubire, trezita cu sfiala la viata dupa o atat de indelungata cunoastere, calita in flacara suferintei, pecetluita de consecventa, consolidata de focul pur si dainuitor al afectiunii, supusa de ratiune la toate incercarile intelectului si, in cele din urma, forjata prin insasi viata ei la aceasta desavarsire fara pata, aceasta iubire care dispretuieste pasiunea, frenezia si delirul ei si stingerea ei atat de grabnica, in iubirea aceasta crezusem cu toata fiinta mea."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
