Quote of the Day: Alfred Hitchcock Movies

I’ve never done a quote of the day post before, but I just wanted to quickly share this one with you as it is one of my new favorites:

“Bad movies are photographs of people talking. A Hitchcock movie is a photograph of people thinking.”

I heard it the other day while watching a special feature included with the DVD of Alfred Hitchcock’s I Confess (1953), a movie starring Montgomery Clift and Anne Baxter. From what I could tell, it was a quote made by Alfred Hitchcock himself. I think it is perfectly illustrated in that movie, especially when it comes to Clift’s performance and the expressiveness of his eyes.

I love great quotes, so I hope to do more of these short posts in the future.
