    Zaius.

    A: A Springfield '03 rifle.

    Q: In "Psycho," when does Alfred Hitchcock make his appearance?

    Sheela, I seem to remember him walking by as an extra on the street, or am I getting confused with the movie "The Birds"?

    Roz_City. In "Psycho," he did walk by on the street.

    Your turn to post a question.

    Manchurian Candidate was released in October 1962. Angela Lansbury was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the 1962 Oscars. When President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, there was speculation in some quarters that the movie had served as a blueprint for the assassination. The movie was withdrawn, supposedly because of lobbying by the President's close friend, Frank Sinatra. It was re-released in 1987.

    Dr Strangelove, however, was scheduled for release in December 1963. It was delayed until January 1964 as a result of the assassination. Some web sites erroneously list its release date as 1963, but that was only its scheduled, not its actual, release date. Also, some lines of dialogue were altered because of the assassination.

    I find this fascinating.

    Manchurian Candidate is one of my all-time favorites. As is Dr Strangelove.
    I find it fascinating as well. I love this sort of historical trivia.

    I was born in December of 1963 myself. So about one month after the assignation. But it was always my understanding that Manchurian Candidate was made in 1962 but not released.

    Butr here is a blurb from an article I found on the film. It confirms that you are indeed correct my friend. I tip my cap to you. :-)

    "Scheduled for major theatrical release, and boasting the only great acting perfomance of Frank Sinatra's career, the film had the bad luck to seemingly prefigure JFK's assassination by several months. The movie had to be pulled from theaters schedules, and for decades moviegoers were deprived of an odd, eccentric, paranoid and brillant piece of Cold War film-making".

    Correct. Even though that's not really what it was, that was how they had to get the point across that it was going to be an off-the-wall comedy. You're up, Daddio.

    Thank you colby_d.

    OK, This one may be a bit tough unless you are a real movie trivia buff.

    As mentioned above - Alfred Hitchcock made a cameo appearance of some sort in every one of his movies.

    Question: How did Alfred Hitchcock appear in his movie "LifeBoat" a movie that took place entirely on-board a small life boat with about 10 or 12 passengers who survived when the luxury liner they were sailing on sunk? And no he was not one of the survivors and there were no flashback sequences, but he did find a way to have his image appear in the film.

    Wasn't it in a picture for some newspaper advertisement? (I can't remember what for though)

    Or was he on a rescue boat or on the other boat before it sank?
