Alfred Hitchcock never wrote an autobiography, but It's Only a Movie is as close to one as we will ever come.
Drawn from years of interviews with Hitchcock and his friends and the actors who worked with him on such classics as "The Birds", "Psycho" and "Rear View Window", Charlotte Chandler has created a rich, complex, affectionate and honest picture of the man and his milieu. Chandler interviewed many of the stars who appeared in his films, among them Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, James Stewart, Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir Michael Redgrave, Sir John Gielgud, Tippi Hedren, James Mason, Kim Novak, Anthony Perkins, and Janet Leigh.
It's Only a Movie is a rich, affectionate and honest look at the life of the master of suspense who made cinematic history. First published 2005
