Of whom did Alfred Hitchcock say, 'If you break his back, you'll find
chocolates inside, poisoned'?

Screenwriter Charles Bennett (THE 39 STEPS) tells all in an excerpt from
his memoirs, exclusively published on the Hitchcock Scholars/'MacGuffin'

Also new on the same website is an article by Bill Krohn ('Hitchcock at
Work') on an aspect of FAMILY PLOT, and a survey by Dr Alain Kerzoncuf
of the many 'remakes' of Hitchcock movies.

On the site's News & Comment (Home) Page, recent "Editor's Day" topics
have included: (1) Hitchcock and the German director E.A. Dupont; (2)
author Gary Giblin reports on his visit to such places as the original
of 'Moat House' in EASY VIRTUE; (3) we list the dozen films by Hitchcock
based on works by gay writers; (4) the suitability of Phoenix, Arizona,
to PSYCHO; (5) a little-known aspect of SABOTEUR; (6) multiple
MacGuffins in VERTIGO and NxNW; (7) what makes a Hitchcock villain; and
(8) the missing art gallery scene from THE PARADINE CASE described by
Bill Krohn.

Visit soon!

Thanks all - Ken Mogg (Ed., 'The MacGuffin').
