"Nowadays fellow Hitchcock scholars often ask me where I have deposited the tapes, or at least the unedited transcripts of our conversations. What they do not seem to understand is that, for one thing, those were the days when Hollywood biographies were for easy reading, not note-laden scholarly evaluation, and for another, that my relationship with Hitch remained friendly and social, almost chatty. It never occurred to me to introduce a tape recorder into the proceedings – it would even have been something of a social faux pas to have done so, and certainly have changed the relaxed and revealing nature of the discourse."
"Hitch" remains essential reading for anyone interested in Alfred Hitchcock. If you are left hungry for more, Patrick McGilligan's weighty biography of the director ("Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light") goes into a lot more depth than Taylor and is a more balanced read than Donald Spoto's error-strewn, sensationalist and highly speculative "Dark Side of a Genius".
At the time of writing, the Kindle edition of "Hitch" is £3.43, which is an incredible bargain.
