* ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' (1959) – A spy thriller involving a man [[spoiler: who doesn't exist]], a crop duster, a murder in the UN, and a climax on top of Mount Rushmore. And, once again, Creator/CaryGrant, playing, once again, an innocent man wrongfully accused. Was a huge influence on the Film/JamesBond movies, which started production a few years later.

** For ''Vertigo'', Kim Novak was not his first choice, and most of the costumes were selected for Vera Miles(she appeared in ''The Wrong Man'' and played Marion Crane's sister later in ''Film/{{Psycho}}''). So Kim Novak's stiffness and discomfort as Madeleine emphasized by costumes for another actress actually helped her in that role.

*BaitAndSwitch: It's reasonable to say that Hitchcock pulled off this trope on a meta level that would impact cinema forever; prior to 1960, audiences were used to Hitch's style of building mystery and suspense with films like Vertigo and North By Northwest, as well as his TV series. Then Psycho came out, and the first act of that movie was true to his usual style. Then Janet Leigh takes her shower...and a whole new genre of horror is born - the slasher film. Unless viewers had read the book, ''nobody'' saw it coming.

* ''Film/{{Mr And Mrs Smith|1941}}'' (1941) – A ScrewballComedy (his first American attempt at a pure comedy) about a couple learning their marriage wasn't valid. Earlier that day, the husband confessed that, if given the chance again, he wouldn’t have married her. After finding out, he changed his mind… but so has she. Not to be confused with the 2005 Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie film.

* HasAType: There are debates about whether there was a sexual element to this, but Hitchcock definitely preferred blondes as his heroines (think Creator/GraceKelly, Eva Marie Saint, Kim Novak, Janet Leigh or Tippi Hedren).

** From the 50s onwards, Hitchcock's films featured
blondes as his heroines (think Creator/GraceKelly, (Creator/GraceKelly, Eva Marie Saint, Kim Novak, Janet Leigh or Tippi Hedren). The movies he made in the 30s and 40s generally featured brunettes and dark haired actresses (Joan Fontaine, Creator/IngridBergman, Theresa Wright, Sylvia Sidney among others).

** Interestingly, Hitchcock also had a "type" of heroes - they were mostly tall and thin and often had an air of youthfulness or vulnerability. Examples are Creator/MichaelRedgrave in ''Film/TheLadyVanishes'', Creator/GregoryPeck in ''Film/{{Spellbound}}'', Creator/JamesStewart in any of his four Hitchcock movies, and, of course, Anthony Perkins in ''Film/{{Psycho}}''.
