Hitchcock refused to work with titles designer Saul Bass on the opening sequence of
North by Northwest and instead Robert Burkes did the design.
"No Bail for the Judge" was Hitchcock's first movie with Audrey Hepburn, which grossed
nearly $5 Million dollars - making it one of Hitchcock's bigger hits.
"Psycho" was filmed on a small budget with Hitchcock using his TV crew from "Alfred
Hitchcock Presents" and shot in black and white to save money.
The last shot of "North by Northwest" is a train going into a tunnel, a visual metaphor for
the lead characters having sex.
Robert Bloch wrote the original novel, "Psycho," based on the true life story of Ed Gein,
a farmer who was accused of grave robbing, cannibalism and murder and was a very
successful novel at the time that the film rights were purchased by the studio.
