Alfred Hitchcock takes us inside his creative process in this fascinating 1964 program from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. “A Talk with Alfred Hitchcock” is part interview, part master class in the craft of telling stories on film.
The program was produced in two segments for the documentary series Telescope. It features scenes from Hitchcock’s movies, interviews with his long-time collaborators, and glimpses of Hitchcock at work on the set of his 1964 film Marnie. The interview, conducted by Fletcher Markle, covers a lot of ground. In episode one (above), Hitchcock talks about the nature of art and the methods he uses as a filmmaker to manipulate the audience’s emotions. The discussion continues in episode two (below) with more on Hitchcock’s career, along with insights into his relationship with the public and his outlook on life. “A Talk with Alfred Hitchcock” is a must-see for cinema lovers.
