Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The actress in this 1960 movie should have consulted her AAA vacation pamphlet before renting a room one rainy night. Who is she?

Answer: Janet Leigh

It is said that women everywhere were afraid to take showers for weeks after seeing "Psycho". In the movie, Janet Leigh plays Marian Crane, a secretary in a real estate office. She steals $40,000 from her employer to pay off her fiancÚ's debts so they can be married. On the run, she happens upon a nearly abandoned motel run by the lonely Norman Bates. She checks in, but she doesn't check out.

This was Leigh's only Hitchcock film, but it may be his most famous. Janet Leigh passed away in 2004. The actress Jamie Lee Curtis is her daughter.
2. This riveting 1959 movie features a memorable scene in which Cary Grant is being pursued by a malicious crop-dusting plane. Who is his leading lady?

Answer: Eva Marie Saint

The movie is "North by Northwest", one of several Hitchcock movies in which an average man is caught up in dangerous circumstances which he doesn't understand and can't control. This is one of Eva's earlier films, and the only one of hers Hitchcock directed. Cary Grant plays Roger Thornhill, an advertising executive who is mistaken for a spy.

He runs into Eve Kendall (played by Eva) on a train as he is attempting to escape the real spies who are after him. She helps him to hide; but we find out that she is romantically involved with the ringleader of the spies. Maybe the meeting on the train wasn't an accident. Is she really trying to help him escape, or is she using him for information? The ending is an unforgettable scene atop Mount Rushmore.
3. This 1954 Hitchcock thriller features Jimmy Stewart as a photographer who is laid up with a broken leg. Who is the beautiful actress who comforts him?

Answer: Grace Kelly

The movie is "Rear Window." It has the look of a stage play, unlike an action-packed thriller like "North by Northwest". In the movie, Grace plays the part of a fashion model (no acting required for that) who is Jimmy Stewart's girlfriend. He thinks he has witnessed a murder across the courtyard from his apartment. At first, she thinks he has only imagined it; but she gradually comes to believe him and even to realize that he is in danger.

Grace Kelly was in a total of three Hitchcock films. The director was supposedly in love with her, and who can blame him? She won an Academy Award for her performance in "The Country Girl", which was not a Hitchcock film.
4. The scenes in and around San Francisco are haunting in this 1958 Hitchcock movie. Jimmy Stewart plays an ex-policeman with an awful fear of heights. Who is his leading lady?

Answer: Kim Novak

This movie, "Vertigo", is wonderful for atmosphere, but the plot is a little convoluted. It also stars Barbara Bel Geddes, long before she became Miss Ellie on "Dallas". In the movie, Kim Novak plays two roles. First, as an elegant and apparently mentally ill woman who (we think) commits suicide - then, as an ordinary shop girl with whom Jimmy Stewart falls in love. Her guilt compels her to confess that she has been an impostor, hired to deceive him to cover up a murder.

Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart also acted together again in "Bell, Book and Candle".
5. In this 1964 psychological thriller, the leading lady is a beautiful kleptomaniac. What is the name of the actress? (Her character's name is also the movie's title.)

Answer: Tippi Hedren

The film is "Marnie". Sean Connery (around the time he became James Bond) plays opposite her. Tippi portrays Marnie Edgar, a woman who has had a very traumatic childhood. As an adult, she is phobic about the color red and thunderstorms, and is fearful of men. Her repressed memories are also manifested in a compulsion to steal. She and Connery's character marry, but he learns that she is frigid. We see her gradually come to understand and overcome the demons inside her.

This is the second of two films Hedren made with Hitchcock. She is the mother of actress Melanie Griffith.
6. In this 1946 movie, a woman is asked to go undercover to learn the secrets of a clandestine Nazi group. Who is she?

Answer: Ingrid Bergman

This gripping thriller is "Notorious". Ingrid Bergman's character is Alicia Huberman, the American daughter of a former Nazi. Several of her father's friends, including a man named Sebastian (played by Claude Rains), have escaped to Brazil. The CIA is interested in keeping tabs on the group's activities, so they send agent T.R. Devlin (Cary Grant) to meet with Alicia to discuss a plan for infiltrating the group.

The plan calls for Alicia to marry Sebastian. She falls in love with Devlin, but agrees to the plan when she realizes that he doesn't love her.

When Sebastian discovers Alicia's identity and purpose, he tries to poison her. She narrowly escapes with her life, and she and Devlin end up together.
7. In this 1945 drama, the underlying theme is repressed memory. The leading man is Gregory Peck. This leading lady plays a psychologist who tries to help him. What is the actress's name?

Answer: Ingrid Bergman

The movie is "Spellbound". Ingrid is Dr. Constance Petersen, a psychoanalyst at a mental hospital. Dr. Anthony Edwardes, played by Gregory Peck, has been hired as the hospital's new administrator. Dr. Petersen soon discovers that Dr. Edwardes is not the man who was hired for the job. Could Dr. Edwardes have murdered the real administrator and taken his place? It looks that way, but by this time Dr. Petersen has fallen in love with Dr. Edwardes, and she refuses to believe that he could be a killer. She makes it her mission to prove his innocence, which she does.

Ingrid Bergman made three films with Hitchcock. She was a highly honored actress, winning three Academy Awards, two Emmys, and one Tony for her work. She was the mother of actress and model Isabella Rossellini.
8. This 1955 movie is one of Hitchcock's lighter efforts. It takes place in Monaco, and stars Cary Grant as a retired cat burglar. Who is the actress in the leading role?

Answer: Grace Kelly

This entertaining film is called "To Catch a Thief". Cary Grant plays a retired cat burglar named John Robie. Grace Kelly is Francie Stevens, a wealthy young lady who is vacationing with her mother in Monaco, where John Robie used to ply his trade. A series of jewel robberies occurs, and Robie is suspected of being the thief. This time he is innocent, and Francie, who has fallen in love with him, is able to help him prove his innocence and catch the real thief.

Grace Kelly made three films with Hitchcock. She grew up in a prosperous section of Philadelphia, and really lived the fairytale life many girls only dream about. After a relatively short movie career, she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. She was killed in a car crash at age 52.
9. This 1963 thriller made everyone who saw it look at birds in a totally different light. The protagonist is a winsome young socialite who is attacked mercilessly by dozens of our feathered friends. Who is the actress who plays her?

Answer: Tippi Hedren

"The Birds" is based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier. This was Tippi Hedren's first movie, following a career as a model.

Reportedly, Hitchcock saw her as his next Grace Kelly. She made only one more film with the great director, before deciding that he was too controlling, and bought out her contract. Ironically for someone who is tormented by animals in this film, she has become well-known as an advocate for the preservation of wildlife sanctuaries. She and her daughter, Melanie Griffith, have appeared in several films together.
10. In this 1956 spell-binder, a doctor (played by Jimmy Stewart), his wife and son have their vacation rudely interrupted by a group of thugs who mistake him for a spy. Who is the actress who plays his wife?

Answer: Doris Day

The movie is "The Man Who Knew Too Much". He really doesn't know anything, but the men pursuing him think he does. Many other movies, such as "Frantic", with Harrison Ford, have imitated "The Man Who Knew Too Much". Day plays Josephine Conway McKenna, Stewart's movie wife. Doris Day's signature song, "Que Sera, Sera" is from this film; it won an Academy Award for Best Song.

Hitchcock actually filmed it twice, the first time in 1934. This was the only film Doris Day made with Hitchcock. She is probably best known for the comedies she made with Rock Hudson.
