“Give them pleasure. The same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.” (Hitchcock)
The great Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980), director and film maker, was nicknamed ‘The master of suspense’. By adding a psychological twist to his films he had his audience sitting on the edge of their seats.
Throughout his career he made some 55 classic films and appeared as a cameo in at least 40 of these. I had forgotten how gripping his film ‘Vertigo’ (1959) was until I watched it again recently. Alongside his other popular films Rear Window (1954), North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960) Hitchcock’s collection of films make for an amazing evenings viewing.
For all you Hitchcock lovers - can you guess which of his films the following cameo appearance are taken from?
