The Hitchcock's on Hitch (2004)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Alfred Hitchcock's daughter Pat and his granddaughter Mary Stone are interviewed and discuss the personal life of the great director. This is a pretty unique documentary because it really gives you some great detail into what Hitchcock was like when he wasn't working. The daughter and granddaughter discuss vacations, Hitchcock's love of regular food and all of this is backed up by some terrific home video footage. There's another great story about the Hitchcock's coming to America and at first just rented but the story takes a turn when we learn how the director surprised his wife by informing her how he had bought a house. This is a really good documentary because it gives you an insight to what type of person Hitchcock was when the cameras were off. The home video footage is certainly a major plus as we get to see the director having fun off the set at parties and vacations. Fans of the director should really get a kick out of seeing this footage and all of the stories are quite touching as well.
