Did You Know?

  • According to Hitchcock himself, he was required to stand at the foot of his mother's bed, and tell her what happened to him each day.
  • When finishing a cup of tea while on the set, he would often non-discrimingly toss the cup and saucer over his shoulder, letting it fall (or break) wherever it may.
  • For "Psycho" (1960), 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 in 2006 terms.

“To me, 'Psycho' (1960) was a big comedy. Had to be."
