Hitchcock Cameos Trivia Questions

1. In which film did Hitchcock appear walking past a roadside stand where an elderly man was admiring paintings for sale?

From Quiz
A Hitch in the Action

Answer: The Trouble with Harry

Hitchcock was on screen for all of 21 seconds. 'The Trouble with Harry' is a light-hearted murder mystery, very off-the-wall, with a delightful cast of odd characters. It's worth seeing just for the performances turned in by Mildred Natwick and Edmund Gwenn. Shirley MacLaine made her screen debut in this movie.

2. Hitchcock's appearance in both "To Catch a Thief" and "North by Northwest" involves a mode of transport. What is it?

From Quiz Cue the Marionette Music

Answer: Bus

In "North by Northwest" he's the man who just misses the bus towards the end of the opening credits. In "To Catch a Thief" he's sitting to the left of John Robie, who has just escaped police questioning, about 10 minutes into the movie. Both movies star Cary Grant. "North by Northwest" is a mistaken identity movie. Advertising executive Roger Thornhill is kidnapped when he's mistaken for another man. This puts him in the middle of an espionage case, and the prime suspect in a murder. While trying to clear his name, Thornhill is chased by a crop duster and the climactic scene occurs on Mount Rushmore. "To Catch a Thief" takes place on the Riviera. John Robie is a retired burglar known as the Cat, but a recent outbreak of jewel thefts leads the public to believe he's returned to work. Robie realizes the only way to clear his name is to catch the actual thief. Cary Grant was born Archibald

3. After credits, runs to bus which closes its door and leaves without him.

From Quiz Alfred Hitchcock Cameos

From Quiz Cue the Marionette Music

Answer: Dial M for Murder

Hitchcock appears in one of the class reunion photos hanging on the wall about 13 minutes into the film. "Dial M for Murder", released in 1954, starred Grace Kelly and Ray Milland and was based on a stage play by Frederick Knott. Milland plays Tony Wendice who hires/blackmails an old acquaintance to kill his wife, played by Kelly. In the struggle, she kills her assailant. The day before her scheduled execution, her lover, played by Robert Cummings, tries to clear her name. The movie was remade in 1998 as "A Perfect Murder" starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Douglas.

13. Hitchcock appeared as part of the crowd listening to a political speech in one of his later films. Which one?

From Quiz Cue the Marionette Music

Answer: Frenzy

Hitchcock's appearance is early in the film. He's wearing a bowler hat and the only member of the audience who does not appear to be listening to the speaker, at least until someone notices a nude body floating in the river. In "Frenzy", Richard Blaney is suspected of being the Necktie Killer, especially after his ex-wife becomes one of the victims. He's convicted, even though his friend Robert Rusk is the real murderer. Blaney injures himself in prison and escapes while being treated in an attempt to lead the police to Rusk - an attempt which nearly backfires when the police find Blaney standing over the corpse of another woman. "Frenzy" combines serial murder with the black humor of truly frightful gourmet meals served to the police detective by his wife. It was based on the novel "Goodbye PIccadilly, Farewell Liecester Square."

18. Where was Hitch in his last film, 'Family Plot'?

From Quiz A Hitch in the Action

Answer: Behind a frosted glass door at the office of the Registrar of Births and Deaths

By the time 'Family Plot' was made in 1976, people were used to seeing Mr. Hitchcock's distinctive profile because of his television show, so he's relatively easy to spot in this one. The cameo appearance in this movie is 40 seconds long.

19. Hitchcock struggles with a musical instrument on the titular train in "Strangers on a Train". What is it?

From Quiz Cue the Marionette Music

Answer: Double Bass

Hitchcock appears about 10 minutes into the film. "Strangers on a Train" was based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith and and Raymond Chandler wrote an early draft of the screenplay. Although very little of his work appears in the final movie, Chandler got a credit for the screenplay. Tennis star Guy Haines wants to divorce his wife Miriam so that he can remarry, but his wife refuses to consent. Bruno Anthony approaches Haines on the titular train with a proposition - kill my mother and I'll kill your wife. Haines rejects the plan, but Anthony follows through on the plot. When Haines refuses to kill Mrs. Anthony, Bruno tries to frame the tennis player for Miriam's murder.

From Quiz A Hitch in the Action

29. How about another musical instrument question? In "Spellbound" he walks out of an elevator carrying a stringed instrument. Which one?

From Quiz Cue the Marionette Music

Answer: Violin

"Spellbound" combines the murder in retrospect and amnesiac hero formats. When the head of a mental hospital in Vermont retires, his replacement is Dr. Anthony Edwardes (Gregory Peck) who falls in love with colleague Dr. Constance Peterson (Ingrid Bergman). Peterson soon finds out that Edwardes is an imposter, and possibly a murderer. When Hitchcock appears (around the 37 minute mark), Dr. Peterson is waiting for Dr. Edwardes. He recoveries his memory (and his name - John Ballantyne) after a hypnosis-induced dream so bizarre, Salvador Dali designed it.

From Quiz Alfred Hitchcock Cameos
