Dr. Edwards has mentioned Truffaut's interview book with Hitchcock quite a few times, so I thought there might be some people interested in these recordings. This is a collection of about 12 hours worth of the original recordings that went into the making of the fabled tome. In many ways, I think these recordings are much richer. The book, as most English readers know it, has basically been through two translations, from the original French/English hybrid to pure French, and from there to pure English. This sort of translation upon translation can homogenize or bland out any work. Also, the book misses out on the tone of voice, the way Truffaut laughs (or doesn't) at Hitch's jokes, and the times when Hitch sounds clearly bored or irritated. Highly recommended.
