Post 72-Happy Birthday Alfred

Today is Alfred Hitchcock's birthday! Alfred Hitchcock was a famous producer and director,known for his directing and how he makes his movies very different and dark.He was born in Leytonstone, London on August 13th,1899 and lived in London until march 1939 when he moved to Hollywood.Growing up his parents were very strict and he  described his childhood as very lonely.At the age of fourteen his father died and the same year he moved to Poplar, London to study at London County Council School of Engineering and Navigation.From 1919 to 1921 he wrote articles.He began his career as a director and producer in 1924.Making a total of 26 movies in London before moving to Hollywood.In the end he made 60 movies and is now very well known all over the world for his work.He is brilliant and I love his movies.He had this sick way of making his movies so suspenseful and I kinda love that.His scary and wonderful taste will last forever in his work.I thank god for bringing Hitchcock into the world to introduce the word suspense into the movies.Today is his birthday and to celebrate my quotes will be from him.

"In feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director."-Alfred Hitchcock
