Hitchcock was really one of the best! A few of my favorite moments of the genius of suspense:
1. Yawning over Book of Birds. Obviously a reference to his movie The Birds (1963). The photo credit is © Bettmann/CORBIS.
2. Threatening or cute with that gun in his hand? ;)
3. On the set of Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955-1962), that featured several suspense short stories.
4. The meetings with french director François Truffaut yielded one of the most amazing interviews/book of all time.
