Personal Quote:

[on Michelangelo Antonioni and Federico Fellini] Those Italian fellows are a hundred years ahead of us. Blow-Up (1966) and (1963) are bloody masterpieces. [1978] See more »

Trivia:

According to many people who knew Hitchcock, he could not stand to even look at his wife, Alma Reville, while she was pregnant. See more »
