New York: Simon and Schuster, 1985. Revised Edition. Quarto, publisher's printed paper wraps.

Revised edition of New Wave director François Truffaut’s portrait of the master filmmaker.

The book is credited for being instrumental in establishing Hitchcock's reputation as an auteur in the US, and was influential on several notable contemporary filmmakers such as Wes Anderson, Paul Schrader, David Fincher, and Martin Scorcese. Originally published in 1967, this 1985 edition includes Truffaut’s inclusion of further conversations that took place during the the final stages of Hitchcock’s career. Profusely illustrated in black-and-white with film stills and sequences alongside behind-the-scenes photos; with selected bibliography and indexes of film titles and names of cast and crew. Some creasing and edgewear. Very good. Item #6504
