I have an entire collection of his films. As I read his quote - it played in his voice. lol
“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
August 13,1899 On this day in Horror History, Alfred Joseph Hitchcock was born. One of the most influential Directors in history, Hitchcock will always be an undeniable forefather to not just the horror genre, but many cinematic elements in their entirety. Bending social standards of what was acceptable to be seen in theatres and never shying away from letting his talent and vision tear its way into the eyes of film-goers worldwide, Hitchcock’s career gave us some of the most quintessential movies including Psycho (1960) and The Birds (1963). An inspiration to so many, and blood in the hearts of Horror Fans, Hitchcock will live on within everyone who has delved into the mind of the directorial genius.
“Fear isn't so difficult to understand. After all, weren't we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday.” –Alfred Hitchcock
"I have a perfect cure for a sore throat: cut it." -Alfred Hitchcock Horror Central
