Ask and answer as many questions as you want, in no particular order. I'm not picky.
Just gimme all the Alfred Hitchcock trivia you can muster!
I'll start with this inquiry ........
What was the very first line of dialogue uttered in Psycho?

"Wimpy" was the fake working title for Psycho.

Here's my Hitchcock trivia bit: (whoops...pressed submit too soon!)

What special effects blooper can be seen in the scene following Roger O. Thorndike Thornhill (Sorry, my brain was asleep) being forced a glass of bourbon in North By Northwest?

"You never did eat your lunch."
Correct.

----------------

Interesting about the "Wimpy" fake title. I checked a Psycho book and it goes on to explain that the Wimpy titled more than likely stemmed from the name of a 2nd-unit cameraman named Rex Wimpy, whose name appeared on clapboards and production sheets.

Another interesting sidebar on Psycho ..... Did all of you realize that Hitchcock deliberately deceived the press and stated that he was searching for an actress to portray "Mother" in the picture. There was no such Mother search.

It looks like no one knows the blooper.
If you have the DVD of NxNW, watch when the two henchmen are preparing the car right after a dissolve. Follow their heads and enjoy the beauty of matte paintings. :) (Kudos to LDI for not fixing this technical error)

Well, I can't ask anything, since I'm hardly a Hitchcock expert. Here's something that would impress me though:
List all Hitchcock's cameos from his movies. :)
Example: (On the newspaper - Lifeboat)
