Michael Curtiz was more prolific than Hitchcock. Howard Hawks directed a more varied body of work. And Victor Fleming’s life was by any measure more interesting. But the directors who have received the most attention from biographers are those who supported a personal mythology the biographer could either record (Fritz Lang’s determination to buck the Hollywood system, Stanley Kubrick’s obsessive control over his projects) or create (Martin Scorsese’s decision to leave religious life for a Hollywood career, Quentin Tarantino’s life lived wholly through the movies).

Even to categorize a filmmaker as extroverted or introverted, of course, is already to speculate, and to argue that introverts create not only personal but autobiographical cinema because they have no other choice is to mythologize on a grand scale, a scale worthy of Hitchcock himself. But Spoto’s romantic myth of Hitchcock as involuntary autobiographer, which follows Hitchcock in its assumption that all films are and must be reflections of their director’s personal views, is a response to an earlier myth that also takes its cue from Hitchcock.
