Often regarded as one of the most influential movie directors in history, Alfred Hitchcock was credited with making over 50 films. Alfred was born in England but later moved to and took up residence in the United States ( California ). He has also been referred to as the "master of suspense" with an odd sense of humor and dark imagination, Hitchcock made films ranging from the famous "North by Northwest" starring Cary Grant to one his most commercially successful films "Psycho" which has turned into a cultural iconic film. It has been debated about the treatment of actors and actresses that worked on Hitchcock movies after famously referring to them as "working with cattle". During an interview on the Dick Cavett show, Hitchcock playfully in his unique way denied saying that. Throughout 1955-1965, Hitchcock produced, created and hosted "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" which was full of suspense, mysteries and thrillers. He had a penchant for casting blondes, and had a particular appreciation for actress Grace Kelly and cast her in three of his movies.
