The MacGuffin in Movies

lindaLinda on 06/05/2006

TheMacGuffininMovies Photo There are alternate spellings to the word I used -could be either McGuffin or Maguffin. The spelling is not the important thing. It is a plot device. It moves the characters and the story along. What it actually is could be easily changed without changing the story. In other words, the MacGuffin is not the point of the story. Hitchcock thought the origin of the word might be Scottish, but no one is sure. Hitchcock employs it in many of his movies as do others. I will tell you the film and you chose the MacGuffin from the list. Remember what the MacGuffin actually is or contains is unimportant to the story. My main source was Wikipedia.
