TO celebrate Alfred Hitchcock’s 124th birthday, Sun Bingo wants to know how many of his films you have seen.
The renowned twentieth-century film director was born on 13th August 1899 in Leytonstone, England.
Within his lifetime, he directed 53 fictional films.

The famous director was known for his particular character, which included phobias of the police and eggs.
His films redefined the boundaries of filmmaking, including breaking the Hays Code (a set of industry guidelines that enforced self-censorship) multiple times.
Such defiant moments included filming a flushing toilet in Psycho.
Despite never winning a directorial Oscar or Cannes award, Hitchcock did receive other accolades.
These included the Irving Thalberg Memorial Award in 1967. Hitchcock’s acceptance speech was just two words long – thank you.

The London-born director also received a BAFTA Fellowship in 1971, an American Film Institute Life Achievement Award in 1979 and, later that same year, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
Fans of Hitchcock films will know to look out for his cameos, with the director appearing in 39 of his own films.
Only ever small, background roles, Hitchcock has been a pedestrian, public transport passenger and even a poster boy for a weight loss product.

The list of 53 films below that give director credits to Alfred Hitchcock does not include the 1926 film The Mountain Eagle.
That’s for a very good reason.
This is considered a lost film. All prints of the movie have disappeared.
All that is left is a few production photos and a lobby card. Hitchcock was apparently pleased with the film’s disappearance, calling it “a very bad movie”.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BINGO BONUSES
That didn’t stop it from topping the British Film Institute’s Most Wanted list of lost films.
Fortunately, the rest of Hitchcock’s feature films have survived for our viewing pleasure.
How many have you seen?
Sun Bingo wants to cast a shadow of doubt on the wannabe Hitchcock fans and find the (wo)man who knew too much.
There’s one film title that’s repeated, we aren’t trying to sabotage you, but in fact Hitchcock made two films with the same name some 20 years apart.
