English film director Alfred Hitchcock (“Hitch”) made cameo appearances in 39 of his 52 surviving major films.
For the films in which he appeared, he would be seen for a brief moment boarding a bus, crossing in front of a building, standing in an apartment across the courtyard, or even appearing in a newspaper photograph.
This playful gesture became one of Hitchcock’s signatures; and fans would make sport of trying to spot his cameos.
As a recurring theme, he would carry a musical instrument — especially memorable was the double bass case that he wrestles onto the train at the beginning of “Strangers on a Train”.
In “The Birds”, as Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) enters the pet shop, Hitch is leaving with two white Sealyham terriers.
This is a film of every single ‘Hitchcock cameo’.
Here are some recent cameos.

@legalaware Should think so too – most important and thought-provoking book on dementia for quite a while IMHO. Don’t sell yourself short.
