    [QUOTE=jamal.nazreddin;n71221]I noticed that Arthur Levine/Laurents (who wrote the script for Hitchcock's 'Rope') said "Hitch was ‘intrigued by the varieties of sexual life . . .in fact he was like a child who’s just discovered sex and thinks it’s all very naughty".
    [/QUOTE]

    Hitch conceded that he was a virgin when he married Alma and has been faithful to her since (I forget the source of that nugget, it might have been the Truffaut interviews). One can therefore understand his fascination/interest in sex

      A wise man once told me it is not possible to [I]give [/I]offence, only to [I]take [/I]offence...

      One man's meat etc. ;)

        Is this idiom offensive?

          Not to me.
          It's offensive only to those who take offence. ;)

            I don’t find it offensive and it’s pretty much still in use ;)

              As Linus said in a Peanuts cartoon strip: "Some of those old wives were pretty smart".

                As I recall, Doris Day, Kim Novak and Vera Miles, were blonds. Neither of these actresses ever complained about Hitchcock making advances toward them. I could be wrong. But I never heard anything about improper conduct by Hitchcock, concerning these actresses.
