Dial H for Hitchcock

“If I won’t be myself, who will?”
-Alfred Hitchcock

Espionage, Thriller, Horror, Drama. One man.

A timeless director with films in every genre, Alfred Hitchcock was the man who pushed boundaries, thus creating the star-studded film universe that cinema lovers admire. Hitchcock worked with countless outstanding actors including SAG Life Achievement Award Recipients James Stewart (6th), Paul Newman (22nd), and Julie Andrews (43rd).

Did you know?
1.     When finishing a cup of tea while on set, Hitchcock would often toss the cup and saucer over his shoulder, letting it fall (or break) where it may.
2.     He appeared on a 32-cent stamp in the U.S. Postal Service's "Legends of Hollywood" series.
3.     Although he was nominated five times, Hitchcock never won a best director Oscar®.
4.     He appears in a cameo role in all of his films.
5.     He was a man with two fears: the police and eggs.
6.     For "Psycho," he deferred his standard $250,000 salary in lieu of 60% of the film's net profits. His personal earnings from the film exceeded $15 million. Adjusted for inflation, that amount would now top $150 million (as of 2006).
