Autodidact and breathtakingly talented French director Francois Truffaut, who was also one of the founder of the New Wave but got somehow overshadowed by Godard in America, was a huge Hitchcock fan.

Such a fan indeed that despite his bad English he conducted, with the help of Helen Scott, a series of interviews with the British Master in 1962 that starts with Hitchcock’s childhood and early film career and ends with the making of Psycho, released two years prior the two directors meeting.

Thanks to Film Detail you can now download the entirety of the interviews here.

These interviews are the unedited version that came out int the book Hitchcock by Truffaut: A Definitive Study of Alfred Hitchcock released by Truffaut and Scott in 1967.
