In the year this photograph was taken, Hitchcock embarked on the first of two television series: Alfred Hitchock Presents (1955-61) and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1961-5). Introducing the programmes in person, his features became universally known and all the more eagerly sought in his hallmark momentary film appearances. Photographed on board the Queen Mary, 25 October 1955.
