Scotts Valley, California - quotes

Quotations relating to Scotts Valley, California, where the Hitchcocks had a mountain retreat...

I went up to Santa Cruz for his birthday when we were making Vertigo, for instance. His daughter Pat was there, and we were on the veranda as the phone was ringing with well-wishers. Hitch was quite a guy. I couldn't keep up with him. You know, he would even carry your bags up to your room. He had terrific energy. I couldn't drink as much as he could, either. I would have to go to bed by midnight, and even then I would be dead the next morning. But not Hitch.

Bumstead recalls spending a weekend in 1957 at Hitchcock's second home in Scotts Valley, California.
