The Hitchcock & Truffaut Tapes

Woohoo! It’s gonna be a good day, today! First thing I stumbled on whilst drinking my morning coffee are these audio recordings from 1962 in which the French director François Truffaut carries out a series of extensive interviews with his colleague Alfred Hitchcock.




This is an exceptional document in which two of the greatest minds in 20th century film meet. The interviews were broadcasted on French radio and later edited down into a book. You can listen to (and download) a selection right here. (Truffaut didn’t speak much English, but there is a translator present) Or you can even download the whole collection in a single zip file by going to
