Screengrab / North by Northwest
Earlier this week, Alfred Hitchcock celebrated a birthday. Rather, fans celebrated on his behalf. He would have been 115 years old. Many fans have been passing around this video published as a college project in 2012 by Morgan T. Rhys. Simply titled “Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo,” the video shows exactly that: Alfred Hitchcock’s cameos from The Lodger to Stage Fright and beyond. Many cinefiles can recount for you his cameos in North by Northwest or on a newspaper in Lifeboat, but this video shows all the lesser known and slightly more subtle appearances he made in his own movies.
Watch for yourself and enjoy Hitchcock making himself one of the most infamous extras of all-time.
