An interesting piece of trivia:  Alfred Hitchcock couldn't get permission to film inside the UN, so footage was made of the interior of the building using a hidden camera, and the rooms were later recreated on a soundstage. More Trivia 

Here is a clip from the famous cropduster scene. It's a spoiler. If you haven't seen the movie don't watch it. But then who hasn't seen the movie?


I enjoyed very much this interview with Alfred Hitchcock. He speaks about movie making, suspense, thriller, and that teh audience is teh most important part. To get teh audience involved emotionally is the key to a good movie.

He speaks about his earlier movies during the silent movie era. 
I like what he said about "Trying to avoid the cliche".
