Movie director Alfred Hitchcock constitutes his own genre: his aim was to produce fear and guilt in his audience,
and his films deliver that effect - earning him the title 'Master of Suspense'.

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

“Man does not live by murder alone. He needs affection, approval, encouragement
and, occasionally, a hearty meal.”

“Film your murders like love scenes, and film your love scenes like murders.”

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

“I never said all actors are cattle. What I said was all actors should be treated like cattle.”

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

“Disney has the best casting. If he doesn’t like an actor he just tears him up.”

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

“In many of the films now being made, there is very little cinema: they are mostly what I call 'photographs of people talking'.
When we tell a story in cinema we should resort to dialogue only when it's impossible to do otherwise. I always try
to tell a story in the cinematic way, through a succession of shots and bits of film in between.”

— Alfred Hitchcock
