Copies of “Living well with dementia” are doing more cameos than Hitch

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.
