Episode Summary

The Illustrated Alfred Hitchcock [Part I]
Legendary director Alfred Hitchcock of the best mystery-suspense films the screen has produced, will be interviewed in two separate half hours. In part one, Pia Lindstrom will talk with the master about many aspects of his craft and film clips will be scattered throughout. The film director will discuss his use of such devices as unusual methods of murder, trains, aristocratic blonde women and bizarre, highly svspenseful situations which characterize most of the numerous films be has directed. Specific points made by Hitchcock in the course of these conversations will be illustrated by film dips, among them a sequence from the silent film "The Lodger" (in which he cteverly suggested sound), a montage of beautiful women such as Ingrid Bergman, Eva Marie Saint, Madeleine Carroll, Janet Leigh, Grace Kelly and others who have starred in his films, and a montage of those eagerly awaited moments when Hitchcock himself appeared on camera.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Hitchcock long ago adopted as his own the aim of Dickens' Fat Boy: "I want to make your flesh creep." He is the acknowledged master of thrillers. Beyond that, he has a brilliant visual sense, a distinctive Hitchcockian style. Francois Truffaut, the French filmmaker, places him "among such artists of anxiety as Kafka, Destoyevsky and Poe."

    • NOTES (1)

      • These two Camera Three interviews differ greatly from one another. Today when Hitchcock speaks with Pia Lindstrom, who, as the daughter of Ingrid Bergman, has known him since her childhood, he will describe why he chooses particular films to direct, what he thinks of "method" actors, his conception of an ideal villain, directing silent films and how he regards his own fame.
