Comic Relief: Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock NYWTS

That's right...Alfred Hitchcock.  Not the typical name associated with comedy, but some of his quotes make me chuckle:

  • The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.

  • Disney has the best casting.  If he doesn't like an actor he just tears him up.

  • I am a typed director.  If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.

  • Television is like the invention of indoor plumbing.  It didn't change people's habits.  It just kept them inside the house.

  • When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say, "It's in the script."  If he says, "But what's my motivation?," I say, "Your salary."
