* CreatorBacklash: Hitchcock once said that he regretted ''Film/ForeignCorrespondent'' inspiring a real-life assassination.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There were numerous additional films that Hitchcock had planned, but for one reason or another never got around to making. TheOtherWiki has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unproduced_Hitchcock_projects an extensive list]] of these aborted projects.
** Creator/IanFleming wanted Hitchcock to be the one to direct the first ''Film/JamesBond'' film. (He also wanted CaryGrant to play Bond, which casts ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' in an entirely new light.)
