In interviews ranging from 1955 to 1980, Alfred Hitchcock talks about the time he was locked in a police cell when he was a child and being typecast as a director of thrillers. He also discusses his early films; the advent of "talkies"; planning Psycho; American audiences; cinema techniques; horror films; and the influence of real crimes. He considers the difference between making films in America and Britain; the importance of lighting; his female leads; and being a practical joker. As well as critics, he also touches on avoiding clichés; murder in film; film editing and music; The Birds; the star factor in actors; and making comedies.
