Hitchcock Movie Quotes:

We all know that Hitchcock was most famous and iconic director all time. His ideology about movies are really unimaginable so now we are going to see  about Alfred hitchcock movie quotes and what we can learn from him and how we can implement his idea or thoughts in our life.

Hitchcock was born on 13 August 1899 in east London. Hitchcock told his parents that he wanted to be an engineer, and on 25 July 1913, he left St Ignatius and enrolled in night classes at the London County Council School of Engineering and Navigation in Poplar.

Then on 12 December 1914 his father, who had been suffering from emphysema and kidney disease, died at the age of 52. To support himself and his mother—his older siblings had left home by then—Hitchcock took a job, for 15 shillings a week (£73 in 2017), as a technical clerk at the Henley Telegraph and Cable Company in Blomfield Street near London Wall.

Hitchcock took an interest in creative writing. In June 1919 he became a founding editor and business manager of Henley’s in-house publication, The Henley Telegraph (sixpence a copy), to which he submitted several short stories.

While still at Henley’s, he read in a trade paper that Famous Players-Lasky, the production arm of Paramount Pictures, was opening a studio in London. They were planning to film The Sorrows of Satan by Marie Corelli, so he produced some drawings for the title cards and sent his work to the studio.

Alfred Hitchcock Early life :

They hired him, and in 1919 he began working for Islington Studios in Poole Street, Hoxton, as a title-card designer.

When Paramount pulled out of London in 1922, Hitchcock was hired as an assistant director by a new firm run in the same location by Michael Balcon, later known as Gainsborough Pictures. Hitchcock worked on Woman to Woman (1923) with the director Graham Cutts, designing the set, writing the script and producing. He said: “It was the first film that I had really got my hands onto.

In the summer of 1925, Balcon asked Hitchcock to direct The Pleasure Garden (1925), starring Virginia Valli, a co-production of Gainsborough and the German firm Emelka at the Geiselgasteig studio near Munich.

Hitchcock’s luck came with his first thriller, The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927), about the hunt for a serial killer, wearing a black cloak and carrying a black bag, is murdering young blonde women in London, and only on Tuesdays.

After that he done so many suspense thriller movies that become cult classic till now. After still many year most of his movies were be considered as a references movie that if you want to know how to make suspense thriller then you should see the Hitchcock’s  movie first.
