Hitchcock by François Truffaut( Book )

24 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,807 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!'")

L'amour en fuite by François Truffaut( Visual )

In Truffaut's fifth and final film of his semi-autobiographical "Antoine Doinel" series, we see Doinel in his 30's and newly divorced. Still ambivalent about relationships, the wrath of Doinel's mother forces him to confront his insecurities and rekindle some past relationships. Clips and characters from the four previous "Doinel" films makes this charming and sentimental film a must-see for any Truffaut fan. Loosely based on Truffaut's own life
Domicile conjugal = Bed and board by François Truffaut( Visual )

88 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth installment in François Truffaut's chronicle of the ardent, anachronistic Antoine Doinel, Bed and Board plunges his hapless creation once again into crisis. Expecting his first child and still struggling to find steady employment, Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) involves himself in a relationship with a beautiful Japanese woman that threatens to destroy his marriage. Lightly comic, with a touch of the burlesque, Bed and Board is a bittersweet look at the travails of young married life and the fine line between adolescence and adulthood
