Alfred Hitchcock’s Cameos

Much like the answers in the back of a Where’s Waldo puzzle, this video highlights and exposes Alfred Hitchcock infamous cameo appearances.

Set to the music in Alfred Hitchcock Presents, this video is a friendly reminder of the many historic and memorable films created by auteur, Alfred Hitchcock. Using DVD’s of the feature length films, the video creator strings together the title cards and cameo’s of Alfred Hitchcock.

The creator notes on his YouTube post that some of Hitchcock’s cameo appearances are missing: Easy Virtue (1927), Blackmail (1929), Foreign Correspondent (1940), Suspicion (1941), Spellbound (1945), The Paradine Case (1947) and Under Capricorn (1949).

I have seen almost all of Hitchcock’s films, yet I am always so absorbed by the plot and the numerous details that I never focused entirely on his cameos. My favorite appearance has always been Lifeboat when Hitchcock is featured as a fat guy in a weight loss ad on the back page of the newspaper, the image created from his shadow in The Wrong Man wins my aethestic tastes.
