Hitchcock Trivia

Recommended Posts

Correctomundo, David. Well done.


Hitchcock and Ben Hecht consulted Nobel Prize winner Dr. Robert Millikan about the atom bomb. He didn't tell them much, but admitted that the main ingredient, uranium, could fit in a wine bottle.


Your go.

Well, why wouldn't powdered uranium -- or anything else -- fit in a wine bottle?


Of course, the color and texture of what was in the bottles is totally wrong (a good thing Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld never saw the movie, or we'd have invaded Brazil by now) but, as Hitchcock observed, it's just a Maguffin, and the audience don't care.
