Citáty Alfred Hitchcock


„If you can't do it naturally, then fake it.“

„If I won't be myself, who will?“ Alfred Hitchcock: Interviews


„Ideas come from everything“

„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.“

„It seems to me that television is exactly like a gun. Your enjoyment of it is determined by which end of it you're on.“

„By and large, I feel that the more interesting work in the field of murder is done by amateurs. They are people who perform their work with dignity and good taste, leavened with a sense of the grotesque. There is polite and wholesome mayhem, practiced by civilized people, and I personally enjoy it.“

„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.“

„ლოგიკა მოსაწყენია“


„Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.“

„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.“

„Estoy seguro que a cualquiera le gusta un buen crimen, siempre que no sea la víctima“

„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.“


„Puns are the highest form of literature.“

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

„Content, I am not interested in that at all. I don't give a damn what the film is about. I am more interested in how to handle the material so as to create an emotion in the audience. I find too many people are interested in the content. If you were painting a still life of some apples on a plate, it's like you'd be worrying whether the apples were sweet or sour. Who cares?“

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