Today’s sentence comes from It’s Only a Movie: Alfred Hitchcock – A Personal Biography by Charlotte Chandler. Here Hitchcock reminisces about the time his team became broke while shooting for The Pleasure Garden in Germany. Alma was his wife.
“Until a check arrived from London, we were dependent on the hospitality of our German friends, who saw to it that we lost no weight, unfortunately. Looking back at some snaps Alma took of me at that time, a bit of hunger might have done me some good.”
