Hitchcock by François Truffaut( Book )

25 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is fellow director François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed. Here is a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on two cinematic masters from very different backgrounds as they cover each of Hitch's films in succession. Though this book was initially published in 1967 when Hitchcock was still active, Truffaut later prepared a revised edition that covered the final stages of his career. The book is a storehouse of insight and witticism, including the master's impressions of a classic like Rear Window ("I was feeling very creative at the time, the batteries were well charged"), his technical insight into Psycho's shower scene ("the knife never touched the body; it was all done in the [editing]"), and his ruminations on flops such as Under Capricorn ("If I were to make another picture in Australia today, I'd have a policeman hop into the pocket of a kangaroo and yell 'Follow that car!'")
A bout de souffle = Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard( Visual )

173 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'One of the germinal films of the French New Wave. This gangster-chase story with existential overtones is notable for director Jean-Luc Godard's innovative technique and use of improvisation. Jean-Paul Belmondo plays the Bogart-like young hood and Jean Seberg the American girl who betrays him in a moment of pique. Based on the idea by Francois Truffaut.' (SFSU)

What is cinema? by André Bazin( )

22 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

L'Argent de poche by François Truffaut( Visual )

101 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A boy finds a few coins in an amusement park. A shy girl sneaks a glance at the even shyer boy she fancies. They're small events, but not for a child. 'A child invents life, ' says François Truffaut, who brilliantly captures the joys, yearnings, pain and wonder of childhood. ... The setting is Thiers, a town in southern France. ... Within that warmhearted community, Truffaut interweaves vignettes of puppy love, school days, bragging rights, trips to the movie house, loving parents--and one boy's escape from the nightmare of child abuse"--Videodisc sleeve
