Hitchcock’s cameos

Thirty-seven of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie cameos in three and a half minutes. Great fun — especially because I’d forgotten (or never knew) the great authors who either worked with Hitchcock or whose material Hitchcock adapted, including Daphne du Maurier and John Steinbeck.

  1. I’ve always loved looking for Hitchcock in his movies. I read a book about him written by a woman who was friends with his daughter, very interesting. The most clever cameo was the Lifeboat one.

    Is it North by Northwest where the plane is shooting at a runny Cary Grant? It would have been really funny if Hitch would’ve been the pilot of the plane.

  2. Okay, a RUNNING Cary Grant. A Runny Cary Grant sounds serious. A trip to the doctor might be in order.

  3. I think the film with the runny Cary Grant is called South by Southwest. . .

  4. Hahahahahaha!

  5. haoheoaheohaoeha!

  6. This is a brilliant compilation – and I didn’t realise he’d done Steinbeck (though Rebecca remains one of my all-time favourites).
    Incidentally, I once read a book of his short stories. I was staying in the darkened and rather creepy loft conversion of my aunt’s bungalow when I chanced upon a compelling story about a man could make people do things they didn’t want to do….and it was absolutely terrifying. He was a gifted writer.
