Alfred Hitchcock’s secret cameo?
In North by Northwest (1959) there is a short sequence onboard the train where an old lady has her ticket checked by a pair of rail guards. After a brief exchange of words, the guards move on and the lady half turns to the camera and gives a slightly comical shrug of the shoulders.
Hitchcock had already made a cameo near the start of the film. However, did he decide to play one of his many practical jokes by slipping into a blue dress to make a second cameo in drag?
Although the lady does indeed bear a resemblance to Hitchcock, the role was actually played by actress Jesslyn Fax (who had already appeared in Rear Window and in some episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents).
Hmmm that’s crazy! Looks just like Hitch!
