Anyone who has ever studied Alfred Hitchcock, or read enough about him, knows that he had a wicked sense of humor. He may be known professionally for being the master of suspense but it was his humor that those close to him speak of often. Fox Searhclight, the studio that is releasing Hitchcock in November, has put together a fun PSA video starring Alfred Hitchcock (as played by Anthony Hopkins) to urge moviegoers to not use their cell phones while watching a movie. The video is great fun, and the final shot with Hopkins performing his best Alfred Hitchcock only makes the anticipation for Hitchcock even greater.
