* DramaticIrony: He was the master of "suspense", this was his chief weapon in capturing and keeping the attention of the audience. Almost all of his films contain a situation where the viewer knows more than (some of) the characters, or can see something or someone coming that a character is unaware of. He also stated in interviews that he generally did not like "plot twists" (''Film/{{Psycho}} being one of the exceptions) and he regretted some of the gimmicks like the "lying flashback" in ''Stage Fright'' which he felt rested on fooling and deceiving the audience, and as such tended [[ItWasHisSled to get dated very fast]]

* AbsurdPhobia: According to interviews, he was afraid of eggs.
-->''"Im frightened of eggs, worse than frightened, they revolt me. That white round thing without any holes [...] have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breaking and spilling its yellow liquid? Blood is jolly, red. But egg yolk is yellow, revolting. I've never tasted it."''

* MissingEpisode:
** Hitchcock's first film, a 1923 release called ''The White Shadow'', was thought lost for more than 80 years--until its first three reels were [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/film-news/8781253/Lost-Alfred-Hitchcock-classic-shown-after-80-years.html found]] as part of a private collection in New Zealand.
** 1927's ''The Mountain Eagle'' is not known to survive in any form, despite exhaustive searches of film archives. Check your attic. In his interviews with Truffaut, Hitchcock was dismissive of the film, insisting that it was not a very good film and that the succeeding film, ''Film/TheLodger'' was his first major work.

* ProductionPosse: Amassed a sizable one over his long career.
** His wife Alma Reville served as script supervisor on his first film and played a key role in all his films,
** Joan Harrison was another important producer and was in charge of ''Alfred Hitchcock Presents''.
** Robert Boyle was his preferred Production Designer
** Robert Burks was his most common cinematographer (certainly in the 1950s)
** George Tomassini was his editor until he died after ''Marnie''
** Most famously BernardHerrmann and Saul Bass.
** Actors to appear frequently in his films include Creator/JamesStewart, Creator/CaryGrant, Creator/IngridBergman, Creator/GraceKelly and several other actors of course.
** Several of the actors had UndyingLoyalty to Hitchcock. A prime example of this is actor Norman Lloyd, who later went on to play Dr. Daniel Auschlander on ''Series/StElsewhere'' and Dr. Isaac Mentnor on ''Series/SevenDays'', who worked for Hitchcock as an associate producer and director on ''Alfred Hitchcock Presents''. At the time, Hitchcock was the only person willing to give him any type of gainful employment. Other than that, he had been blacklisted in the entertainment industry for refusing to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee and identify suspected communists and as a result, had been branded as a communist himself.
** Screenwriter Angus Mac Phail (who he credited for coining the McGuffin) had trouble with alcoholism and Hitchcock arranged him to work on ''The Wrong Man'' to help his friend out.

* CastingCouch: Hitch was a notorious womanizer and had affairs with nearly all of his leading ladies until Tippy Hedron, which is sometimes seen as the catalyst for all of the abuse she had to endure when filming ''Film/TheBirds''.
