An amazing interview with a true Hollywood Film Icon ...
18 December 2006 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Dick Cavett does a wonderful job of allowing Alfred Hitchcock plenty of time during the hour long Interview to be Alfred. Dick sits back and lets Alfred reveal all kinds of the wonderful directorial direction Alfred used in some of his famous movies.

The beginning of the show is classic, with Dick coming from the side in shadow as Alfred did so many times on his own show, then the master himself shows the skinny Dick Cavett how it is really done, coming from the other side to meet Dick belly to belly, both in shadow.

The interview lags just a few times, mostly allowing Alfred time to catch his thoughts and spew forth more intelligent banter. You get a rare opportunity to witness and hear some of the great Brilliance this amazing director possessed. I was truly amazed at how simple some of the Techniques he used in making film magic was. I guess having that great mind behind the technique helps tremendously.

I gave it an 8 out of 10, but highly recommend this interview with out any problems whatsoever.
