  1. Ugh. As much as I love Hitchcock films, the guy is creepy. I couldn't help watching (twice) his facial expression as he talked. Strange dude.

  2. Ha--yeah thingy, I think there are a lot of brilliant directors out there who weren't the best company. I get the impression that Hitchcock had a lot of baggage--which of course can lead to great creativity.

  3. Agreed. Talented as he was, Hitch always struck me as a bit of a creep.
