    10 culinary cameos from Hitchcock films

    "The spring/summer 2013 issue, Rough Cut (Summer Film Issue), caught our attention and held it well into October. The Psycho-inspired Slashed Black & Blueberry Pie cover art comes from the "Death Becomes Him" chapter -- an homage of sorts to the great filmmaker and "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock. Alia Akkam highlights memorable culinary cameos from 10 of his films."

    While he left us with plenty of masterpieces to enjoy,Hitch also considered a huge number of other potential projects that never came to fruition. His career is bookended by the unfinished Number 13 (1922) and the unrealised The Short Night (1968-79).

    Among the better-known unmades are Antonioni’s Red Desert (1964) and Blowup (1966), Wreck of the Mary Deare (1959) plus an account of the Titanic disaster, which was to have been Hitchcock’s Hollywood debut (1939-40).Then there was The Bramble Bush (1949-52), David Duncan’s novel about a thief who steals a murderer’s passport.

    Dr. No (1962). Ian Fleming approached Hitchcock to direct the first Bond film



    But Hitch was also linked with such unlikely projects as The Saint in New York, The War of the Worlds, Les Misérables and Treasure Island, as well as tales about Labor leader Keir Hardie, a bigamous ventriloquist, a beleaguered nuclear bomber pilot and the plot to crucify Christ. And how different screen history might be if Ian Fleming had managed to land Hitch for the first Bond movie.
