Thanks Jim. Great puzzle with nice phrasing. Four flew by and the last one drove me crazy. More in the morning.

I agree, very enjoyable. I just wish i was better at them. I struggle with some of the US spellings, and occasional subject matter. To be honest though i just struggle...full stop !!!

Very interesting (and not stupid)... OK not a great Rowan and Martin imitation I agree.

It would be nice to get to watch these movies again.

Considering I've written a couple of trivia quizzes on the topic, I'd have been pretty embarrassed not to make the top ten.

(There is a factual error in one puzzle, but it shouldn't trip anyone up.)

Was it the bank window? Very enjoyable, Jim

Many thanks. I have seen about half of his. I probably will try to see more.

Alfred Hitchcock Cameos

None - alfred hitchcock had cameos in all movies after the mountain eagle is lost -74
The birds - he has two west highland white terriers on leashes leaving the pet shop -71
Frenzy – he is the only member of the audience that does not applaud the speaker – 71
Topaz - hes being pushed in a wheel chair rises and shakes a mans hand and walks – 73
Torn Curtain – alfred directs a baby in his lap when he is seen in the hotel lobby – 67
Psycho – hitchcock is seen with a wide brimmed hat through the bank window – 66
Stage Fright – hitchcock turns to ogle jane wyman as he passes her on the street – 64
Notorious – he downs a crystal glass of champagne in front of the serving staff – 67
North By Northwest – he tries in vain to enter the door of a bus as it pulls off without him – 71
The Paradine Case – he carries a double base with american accented actors set in england – 69

There are those that think he carried a cello rather than a double base.
He did, but not in "The Paradine Case". He carried a cello onto a train in "Strangers on a Train".

Mine said he carried a cello. Weren't the dogs Sealyham terriers?

Sorry, Jim, forgot to say the puzzle was fun. I appreciate anything Hitchcock, was just sorry I didn't get Lifeboat. Thanks!

Smoke, you are right. After further research ... Hitchcock used his own Sealyham terriers Geoffrey and Stanley on leashes. Mia Culpa.

Easy mistake it you were going from memory of the film. Little white dogs, gone in a few seconds.

That was the factual error I mentioned. No problem unless you were trying to shove "Sealyham" into a "Highland"-shaped hole.

You've also listed the pre-edited puzzles -- several of mine had changed quite a bit.
