Hitchcock introduced the
concept of the “MacGuffin”, a contrived plot device around which a
whole story seemed to revolve, but ultimately has nothing to do with the
true meaning or ending of the story. Hitchcock stated that the best
MacGuffin (and the emptiest) was the one used in North by Northwest, which
was referred to as “Government secrets.”
Facts About Sir Alfred Hitchcock stated on the box
Sir Alfred Hitchcock was
a British film director and producer whose career spanned over 50 years,
His films earned him the nickname “The Master of Suspense.”
Hitchcock was born in
London, the youngest of three children, to greengrocers. His childhood was
very sheltered and he had a strict upbringing. As a child, Hitchcock was
sent to the local police station with a note asking the officer to lock
him away for 10 minutes for behaving badly. This event affected him

collaborator and sounding board. He valued and praised his wife’s
efforts, though she preferred to stay out of the spotlight and was only
credited in a few films.
By 1939, Hitchcock moved
to Hollywood, where he later became an American citizen. It was there he
wrote and directed such memorable films as; “Rebecca,” “The
Birds,” “Vertigo.” And the brilliant psychological thriller,

produced a television series entitled “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”.
