When the director of the movie ‘Always Tell your wife’ (1922) became ill, Hitchcock was asked to step in as the director for the completion of the film.

Nonetheless, in 1926, he made his trademark movie called ‘The Lodger’.He soon made films like the lady vanishes and Jamaica inn which made him famous in the USA where he moved to make an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca (1940).When the film saboteur was made, the film industry began to call his movies after him e.g. Alfred Hitchcock’s psycho, Alfred Hitchcock's Family Plot, Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy etc.Hitchcock is sometimes shown at the beginning of most of his movies.
