The Arial Attack

The 39 Steps (1935)
dir. Alfred Hitchcock

North by Northwest (1958)
dir. Alfred Hitchcock

There's a little detail that announces Northeast by Northwest [sic], it's in the country when the policemen are hidden behind the rocks, there's a helicopter that passes and that heralds the plane later on in the other picture.

Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock/Truffaut tapes


  1. In "the lodger the girl" after killing the painter goes to picadilly circus and in a light advertise there is a knive stabbing
    in "a bout the souffle" from Jean-Luc Godard, the's another light advertise that charges over the main character...

  2. That's a good one, thanks. I really need to start focusing on Godard, he's got a lot to work with.
