* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Alma Hitchcock in real life was very matronly and ordinary, very unlike the shapely and stunning HelenMirren, and Hitch himself was far more wrinkly and flabby around the jowline than AnthonyHopkins in the fatsuit.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Vera Miles was blonde in real life. She's played by brunette Jessica Biel - though she does wear a blonde wig on the set of the film. * AndTheAdventureContinues: A variation. The film ends with a bird landing on Hitchcock's shoulder, referencing [[Film/TheBirds the next film]] he would work on.

* DidTheyOrDidntThey: Alma and Whitfield go off to work on a story at his beach house, Hitchcock accuses them of having an affair, to which she responds by attacking him for putting her in that situation, but never denies the affair. ** TruthInTelevision: Both Alma and Whitfield would, after Hitchcock's death, admit that they did in fact have a brief affair during the production of ''Film/{{Psycho}}''. * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Discussed while editing the film as Alma notices a bit of nudity in a few frames of the shower scene.

TruthInTelevision: Both Alma and Whitfield would, after Hitchcock's death, admit that they did in fact have a brief affair during the production of ''Film/{{Psycho}}''. * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: DudeWheresMyRespect: Alma has this attitude, as she opts to work with Whitfield just so she won't be overshadowed by her husband on one production. * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: ** Discussed while editing the film as Alma notices a bit of nudity in a few frames of the shower scene.

* ThePeepingTom: It shows up constantly as a theme for Hitchcock himself. ** A small hole in the trailer walls allows Hitchcock to do this to his female starlets.

** Alto a cute moment in the trailer has someone asking how ''Psycho'' ends, to which Hitch replies "I promised Mother I wouldn't tell." This joke, alas, is not in the movie.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Alfred Hitchcock puts the decayed corpse prop used as Mrs. Bates in Janet Leigh's room. Janet screamed and ran out of her room, demanding an explanation from Hitchcock. "What? Mrs. Bates asked if she could take a nap in your room. I told her that would be fine." Despite the fact that Janet still looked rather mad, we see her grin a little and roll her eyes before she walks off, suggesting this trope.

The film also deals with his relationship with his wife Alma, their struggles with each other and the occasionally petty jealousies that can drive them apart. The film does justice to them as a great couple though and shows their ability to work together to create great works, as well as their ability to work apart and create, not so great works.

* TrailersAlwaysLie: The trailer makes it seem as though Alma suggests killing off Janet Leigh's character midway through the film as a grudge against Leigh herself. Not only is that not the case, but also Alma carefully compliments Leigh at the end on her "professional" behavior--that is, on her ability to resist Hitchcock's attempts to seduce her.

** A non-Hitchcock example has Hitch needling the financiers by saying the finger cakes are actually fingers. [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Charming, Dr. Lecter....]]
