French Translation of Hitchcock
11 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

In the same way that Cecil B. DeMille made 'The Story of Dr. Wassell' as his contribution towards the war effort, Alfred Hitchcock made two short films for the British government in French. As he was an Englishman directing French actors in French, it is akin to Paul writing his letters in Greek, and then writing two other letters in Norman French even though he is not a French speaker or writer. To be able to direct a film in a language that is not your own shows versatility and a broad base of talent.
