Contrary to rumor, Alfred Hitchcock died a devout Catholic

December 07, 2012

Alfred Hitchcock grew estranged from the Catholic Church, and refused to have a priest visit him in his final days, according to a leading biographer of the noted film director. Not so, reports a Jesuit priest who saw Hitchcock frequently near the end of his life, and witnessed his deep devotion to the faith. Father Mark Henninger remarks: “That in the movie director's final days he deliberately and successfully led outsiders to believe precisely the opposite of what happened is pure Hitchcock.”

    I wonder if his perverse and documented obsession with blonde women was part of his "deep devotion to the faith."
