If you’re a fan of Alfred Hitchock (and really, who isn’t?), you better buckle up because there is a whole lotta Hitch coming your way (and fyi, today is his birthday too!). Two movies about the legendary filmmaker are just around the corner with Toby Jones playing the director in the upcoming “The Girl” with Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, and there’s Anthony Hopkins leading “Hitchcock” alongside a helluva ensemble that includes Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, James D’Arcy, Jessica Biel, Toni Colette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Wincott, Kurtwood Smith, Wallace Langham and Ralph Macchio. And that’s not all. Next month Universal is dropping “Alfred Hitchock: The Masterpiece Collection” on BluRay, a boxset of 15 iconic films, 13 of which on the high def format for the first time. But for those looking for a quick journey through Hitchcock’s films, the interwebs has you covered.
Over on YouTube, a dedicated fan has put together a nearly 10 minute long video featuring every single cameo by the director is his films, from the silent “The Lodger” all the way through to “Family Plot.” It’s an interesting journey, one that sees the director oscillating from Where’s Waldo style appearances in the background, to very obvious winks at the audience. Either they, it’s part of the pleasure of watching a Hitchcock movie, so check ’em all about below.
