If you listened to Peter Bogdonovich & Orson Welles intvs, how about Francois Truffaut interviewing Alfred Hitchcock?
In 1962 François Truffaut carried out a series of extensive interviews with Alfred Hitchcock at his offices in Universal Studios.
They were recorded to audio tape and the content eventually edited down into Truffaut’s famous book Hitchcock: A Definitive Study of Alfred Hitchcock.
A landmark meeting of two of the great directors of the 20th century, the conversations cover Hitchcock’s life and career in great detail as they discuss films such as Blackmail (1929), The 39 Steps (1935), Sabotage (1939), Rebecca (1940), Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Lifeboat (1944), Spellbound (1945), Notorious (1946), Rope (194, Strangers on a Train (1951), The Birds (1963), Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (195, North By Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960).
Truffaut did not speak much English, so he hired Helen Scott of the French Film Office in New York to act as the translator for the sessions.
The half hour sessions were subsequently broadcast on French radio and in 2006 Tom Sutpen started posting audio files of the sessions on his blog ‘If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There’d Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats‘.
