Hitchcock, Alfred Easter Egg - Hitch's Very First Cameo!
In 1929 Great Britain the very first talking movie was released. It was directed by none other than Alfred Hitchcock. It was called "Blackmail". He had already directed a half dozen profitable films and his face was well known in Britain. This movie was adapted from a very successful stage play by Charles Bennet. Synchronized talking! What a break for a director.
As usual Hitch played around while filming.
>>>>On train while the heroine sits facing her confidant girlfriend; A man seated facing the camera leans and stares over at the huddled whispering girls trying to eavesdrop. He looks up from a book on top of his briefcase balanced on his lap. It is a mystery book (of course). Brits recognized him immediately. His first on screen appearance was seated with a hat on his head in a crowded coach.
