“Have you any idea at all why you have an obsession with this kind of woman?” (in regards to the icy Hitchcock blondes in most of his films)

“I’m only obsessed because I don’t believe in stamping the woman with the word ‘sex’ all over her. I think it should be discovered in the course of our getting acquainted with her. It’s more interesting for this thing to be not apparent. In other words we don’t have to have the sex hanging round her neck like baubles.” - Alfred Hitchcock
