The Catholic Hitchcock






There is a persistent rumour circulating that Alfred Hitchcock was an atheist. He was not, His sensibilities were entirely Catholic. See this recent piece from the National Catholic Register:

“Hitchcock was a practicing Catholic for most of his life. His wife Alma, a film editor, converted to Catholicism before their marriage in 1926, and they worked and lived together until his death in 1980. They attended Mass weekly, and they quietly made several generous donations to Catholic churches and charities. In 1952, their daughter Patricia married the grandnephew of the late Cardinal William O’Connell, who had been a powerful archbishop in Boston.” – Peter Chattaway
