Trivia

During the scripting stage, a second unit crew was sent to Europe to shoot establishing shots. Sir Alfred Hitchcock later told François Truffaut of the dangers of travel at that time: “This was in 1940, you see, and the cameraman who went over the first time from London to Amsterdam was torpedoed and lost all his equipment. He had to go over a second time.” Location shots for the movie were sparse, however. For the most part, Hitchcock utilized elaborate and expensive sets. He always had a keen interest in set design and would do rough sketches of ideas for his art directors.
