Alfred Hitchcock turned down the offer to direct Rosemary's Baby?


French filmmaker Francois Truffaut claimed that Alfred Hitchcock was first offered the project, but turned it down due to lack of interest in the material, as noted in a 3 Jul 1968 Var article.

I feel like this is one of the only times I'm glad Hitchcock didn't direct something. I'm sure his Rosemary's Baby would have been great like most of his work but this movie is pretty much perfect as is.
