On the occasion of one of the best culture blogs on the Internet posting in mp3 format the nineteenth tape of interviews of Alfred Hitchcock by French New Waver and Cahiers du cinéma
critic François Truffaut, it seems fitting to link to the the blog's archive of those tapes. Much of this content went into the canonical interview volume Hitchcock/Truffaut
, but much was also left out,
and regardless of a reader's familiarity with the material, listening to Hitchcock's tone and (often) evasions is fascinating.
Be sure not to just download the files, as many of the earlier entries have a great deal of analysis and commentary on the interviews themselves.
