Alfred Hitchcock Cameos
« on: April 09, 2009, 11:29:31 PM »
Here’s a bit of fun while you run through the Hitchcock marathon. More than any other director, Hitchcock was famous for his cameos, starting in The Lodger for necessity, then he just did them for a laugh. 37 of them in fact. Here are the ones relating to the marathon so see how many you can spot! No cheating… :P

Great topic!

I do believe that for the movies I own I know where the cameos are (not by heart, but when they come up I will know). As a teenager I read a book about Alfred and his films and they detailed the cameos as well.

Additional trivia:
While in his first films the cameo could happen just anytime he eventually moved them to the first scenes of the film. People got distracted from watching the film when they were looking for his appearance.

At the very end of Topaz, literally just as "The End" appears, I wonder if the portly gent purposefully walking with a friend could be Hitchcock as well? :hmmmm: It's never mentioned, so probably not, but I wonder...

In the docu abouit Frenzy they point out that that is the only film where he appears in two shots (within the same scene). So, if that is him, then apparently nobody else (...eoh was involved in the docu) noticed...
