Alfred Hitchcock had a thing for blondes. Casting them in his films went beyond screen tests and talent. He selected actresses with a certain look, appeal, and subtly who would enhance the suspense of his films. "Suspense," Hitchcock said, "is like a woman. The more left to the imagination, the more the excitement." Take a look at the list of Hitchcock's leading ladies. Can you name the film (films) in which they starred?

The Alfred Hitchcock Triviography and Quiz Book (updated and reissued in May by LL-Publicaitons).
I've seen the Great Blue Heron, still and erect on a sandbank, fishing.
I've even seen it with a mullet, speared and dangling from its beak.
I've seen it in the treetops, neck drawn in, hunkered over, resembling a football on stilts.
I've seen it flying past my window, neck stretched out like an arrow,
legs trailing behind like forgotten baggage.
But that afternoon in the Honey Island Swamp near Slidell, Louisiana,
was the first time I'd ever seen one shake water off its body like a dog.
