Definitive study of the Master of Suspense refreshingly told without the usual cloud of adulation that hangs over studies of Alfred Hitchcock like a thunderhead over a picnic. The book has been gathered from interviews with Hitch conducted by the great French director, Francois Truffaut. Hitchcock is candid about his failures, remorseful of his mistakes, and admirably humble about being one of the undisputed giants in cinema history. Truffaut's questions are pointed, respectful, and informed without ever lapsing into fawning. Illustrated with many photos from Hitchcock's fifty-three films. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
