British-American filmmaker, the most famous suspense, humor and horror director of all times. In a prodigious career he made 54 feature films, starting with the silent genre and is dearly remembered for "The 39 Steps," "Rebecca," "Notorious," "North by Northwest," and the ageless classic, "Psycho."
The son of a grocer and educated by Jesuits, he moved to Hollywood in 1939 and remained there the rest of his life. He was a shy, private outsider who lived quietly with a wife of 53 years and one daughter. He once confessed that he was "frightened of everything: burglars, policemen, crowd, darkness, Sundays." Nor was he interested in sex, saying that it is "for kids, for movies - a great bore."
The master of his media died on 4/28/1980, Hollywood, CA.
