Durante 27 horas e respondendo a 500 perguntas, Hitchcock detalhou a construção de cada um de seus filmes. A entrevista é uma série didática ou simplesmente recreativa que perfaz a cronologia (1920s-1970s) do mestre do suspense focada por outro grande (Truffaut) que antes de ser cineasta fôra um dos melhores críticos da revista Cahiers du Cinéma.
