*In an 1962 interview with Francois Truffaut, Alfred Hitchcock explained why he chose Dali to design the dream sequence in Spellbound:
"I wanted to convey the dream with great visual sharpness and clarity---sharper than the film itself. I wanted Dali because of the architectural sharpness of his work. Chirico has the same quality, you know, the long shadows, the infinity of distance and the converging lines of perspective. But Dali had some strange ideas. He wanted a statue to crack like a shell falling apart, with ants crawling all over it. And underneath, there would be Ingrid Bergman, covered with ants! It just wasn't possible."
