- Hitchcock thrilled audiences during his long, distinguished career as a director.
- Often referred to as the ‘Master of Suspense’ very few have been able to match his legacy of producing over 60 films including Dial M for Murder (1954), Vertigo (1958), Psycho (1960) and The Birds (1963).
- As his signature, Hitchcock made a cameo appearance in all his Hollywood movies
- Producer David O. Selznick lured Hitchcock to move to Hollywood from Britain in 1939 for its incomparable technical facilities and studios resources. He stayed on, becoming an American citizen
- One of his earliest memories is being locked in a cell at the request of his father. He was only in there for a few minutes but it was enough to give him a lifelong fear of the police and influence the themes found in his films
