Alfred Hitchcock Quotes

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock (August 13, 1899 – April 29, 1980)

“There’s no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”

“Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.”

“Drama is life with all the dull bits cut out.”

“A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.”

“The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.”

“Give them pleasure – the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.”

“If it’s a good movie the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on.”

“Luck is everything…My good luck in life was to be a really frightened person. I’m fortunate to be a coward, to have a low threshold of fear, because a hero couldn’t make a good suspense film.”

“Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.
