Quotable Quotes:

"There is a dreadful story that I hate actors. Imagine anyone hating James Stewart... Jack L. Warner. I can't imagine how such a rumor began. Of course it may possibly be because I was once quoted as saying that actors are cattle. My actor friends know I would never be capable of such a thoughtless, rude and unfeeling remark, that I would never call them cattle... What I probably said was that actors should be treated like cattle." (IMDB)

"Did you see the rack on that one? I could make a day of that."

"Alfred Hitchcock's influential life and legacy will forever be remembered as the master of suspense and a pioneer in the world of cinema. (V)"
