Facts about

One of Alfred Hitchcock's favorites of all his films.
Originally designed by Alfred Hitchcock as an experiment in seeing how audiences would react to a non-star-driven film. He was of the opinion that oftentimes having a big star attached actually hindered the narrative flow and style of the story. He also developed the film with a view to test how American audiences would react to a more subtle brand of humor than that which they were used to.
Bernard Herrmann's score was Alfred Hitchcock's favorite of the seven films they did together.
