Hitchcock by François Truffaut( Book )

96 editions published between 1966 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,542 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!'")
The early film criticism of François Truffaut by François Truffaut( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before turning to filmmaking, François Truffaut was a film critic writing for Cahiers du Cinéma during the 1950s. The Early Film Criticism of François Truffaut makes available, for the first time in English, articles that originally appeared in French journals such as Cahiers du Cinéma and Arts. Truffaut discusses films by such acknowledged masters as Hitchcock, Huston, Dmytryk, and Lang, but also examines the work of such lesser-known directors as Robert Wise, Don Weis, and Roger Vadim
What is cinema? by André Bazin( )

29 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 1,805 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

Antoine Doinel is a young Parisian boy who is neglected by his derelict parents, skips out on school, sneaks into movies, runs away from home, steals things, and tries, with disastrous results, to return them. Like most kids, he gets into more trouble for things he thinks are right than for his actual trespasses. But, unlike most kids, he gets whacked with the big stick. He lives in a Paris filled with dingy flats, seedy arcades, abandoned factories, and workaday streets. Paris is a city that seems big and full of possibilities only when seen through the eyes of a child

Tirez sur le pianiste = Shoot the piano player by Francois Truffaut( Visual )

75 editions published between 1960 and 2020 in French and English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: François Truffaut is drunk on the possibilities of cinema in this, his most playful film. Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, Shoot the Piano Player relates the adventures of mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour, in a triumph of hangdog deadpan) as he stumbles into the criminal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague."--Website
