Today in 1899 legendary director of horror and suspense films Alfred Hitchcock was born! Alfred Hitchcock directed movies like Psycho, North by Northwest, The Birds, and my favorite, Vertigo. Hitchcock still to this day has one of the most distinct directorial styles. He did unique and innovative things like using the camera to mimic someones gaze and really took advantage of editing to create suspense. He really was the Master of suspense, to celebrate his birthday, here are a few of his best quotes.
There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.
For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.
Drama is life with the dull bits cut out
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theater admission, and the babysitter were worth it.
