Every film buff knows that director Alfred Hitchcock used to make cameo “walk ons” in his films.  But only Hitchcock aficionados have obsessively tracked exactly where in his movies the director would silently show himself.

Hello everybody.  Joe Morella and Frank Segers, your classic movie guys, to announce that in honor of the summer silly season, we present the crucial second part of our quiz that we published a short while back about where to find Hitchcock in his American-made films.

Ok, here at last are the answers to  our quiz.

On the left, we describe what Hitchcock is doing in 13 of his cameos.  On the right is the correct title of the movie in which it appeared.
