Alfred Hitchcock
Here is someone Ö who has an enormous, inordinate, neurotic fear of disorder. And that's from which he makes his art. He always has his people in a moment of disorder. They think they're in control, they think they have power, they think they have order, and then he just slips the rug out from under them to see what they're going to do.
Hitchcock quotes
The man with the navy-blue voice.
Hitchcock
Like Freud, Hitchcock diagnosed the discontents that chafe and rankle beneath the decorum of civilization. Like Picasso or Dali, he registered the phenomenological threat of an abruptly modernised world.




Hitchcock Alfred quotes
Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.
Hitchcock Alfred
Seeing a murder on television can Ö help work off oneís antagonisms. And if you havenít any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some.
Alfred Hitchcock quotes
One of televisionís great contributions is that it brought murder back into the home, where it belongs.
Alfred Hitchcock
Iím not against the police; Iím just afraid of them.
Hitchcock Alfred quotes
Iím frightened of eggs, worse than frightened, they revolt me. That white round thing without any holes Ö have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breaking and spilling its yellow liquid? Blood is jolly, red. But egg yolk is yellow, revolting. Iíve never tasted it.
Hitchcock
I'd like to know more about his relationships with women. No, on second thought, I wouldn't.
Hitchcock Alfred
Hitch is a gentleman farmer who raises goose flesh.
Alfred Hitchcock
Give them pleasure ó the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.




Alfred Hitchcock quotes
The Birds could be the most terrifying motion picture I have ever made.
Alfred Hitchcock
[This award is] meaningful because it comes from my fellow dealers in celluloid.
Hitchcock quotes
Television is like the invention of indoor plumbing. It didnít change peopleís habits. It just kept them inside the house.
Hitchcock Alfred
Self-plagiarism is style.
Hitchcock Alfred quotes
Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.
Alfred Hitchcock
In the documentary the basic material has been created by God, whereas in the fiction film the director is a God; he must create life.
Alfred Hitchcock quotes
Puns are the highest form of literature.
Alfred Hitchcock
Blondes make the best victims. Theyíre like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.
Hitchcock Alfred
I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
