29 April 1980. Alfred Hitchcock died (aged 80). He was known as the “Master of Suspense” and regarded as one of the most influential and greatest film directors of all time. His films include Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo, Rear Window, The Birds, Notorious, Rope and Frenzy.
Not forgetting ‘To Catch a Thief’ where he made a cameo appearance sitting next to Carry Grant.
As he did in every film, starting from his silent days: https://t.co/5oNJUbUZ60
His films still have a special unique stamp about them. You instantly know who’s made it. A very intelligent director that let the audience build the story up in their own minds before he suddenly turns it in a different direction.
