[on his history as a practical joker] I once gave a dinner party, oh many years ago, where all the food was blue.
If you watch his films closely noting the endings or portrayal of cops, you will see that if a cop is required to die, the death will be slow, gruesome or uncompromisingly grisly. If cops survive they are nearly always portrayed as baddies, though in reality they are the good guys. This is because Hitchcock had a life-long phobia of policemen.
Liked to use major stars in his films that the audience was familiar with, so he could dispense with character development and focus more on the plot.
