Whether it was carrying all sizes of musical instruments ,or stepping on or off buses or trains,or sitting next to Cary Grant, ALFRED HITCHCOCK made an appearance in most of his movies.

There is a wonderful video of all Hitchcock’s cameos at RogerEbert.com
Was it a distraction,an indulgence? It was fun,but I wonder if it became a nuisance for the director. He eventually filmed his spot very near the beginning of each of his films.
Here’s a selection of his cameos.
